The influx of foreign investment and aid from public and European sources goes to attractive regions and potentially profitable area, so it is possible to find a various kind of business networking in European regions where the pursuit to strengthening of traditional industry is.

The essence of business networking functions is the current impact of two strategies - cooperation in a competitive environment; it is a phenomenon that cannot function without strong leadership and mutual trust.

Active exploitation of the possibilities offered by a business networking, leads to greater competitiveness of participating companies. Cooperation within a virtual enterprise brings numerous benefits and limitations like any other. This article focuses on the benefits that accrue to the initiator of a virtual enterprise that is connected in this business network and defines the process of their quantification. The aim is to define a process for quantifying the benefits for initiator of the virtual enterprise. Companies that are considering the initiation of virtual enterprise emergence should be aware of the benefits and limitations in order to assess whether it is for them to cooperation within the business network sufficiently beneficial. It is the way to motivate especially Small and Medium Enterprises to improve their competitiveness and efficiency through business networks without having to resort to drastic solutions such as production cuts or employees layoffs. The greatest potential for the exercise in this form of business network is offered for small and medium enterprises which have limited resources, where through involvement in these business networks can help create its own influential market position. en
