This paper is part of an ongoing research. Throughout it, different approaches to link micro-businesses activities with the development of territorial capital are visited. Five vignettes are provided to illustrate how these research approaches operate. Reflecting on each approach provides practical implications about the building and maintenance of some of the collective resources associated to ‘territorial capital’. Adding on previous economists’ understandings of territorial capital, this paper identifies an alternative research procedure that suggests how to develop and maintain some elusive dimensions of territorial capital, such as social, relational and human capital, and cooperation networks.
