Some organizations reach its objectives by establishing strategic partnerships, forming collaborative networks. Thus, this research presents in this work a study on two separate networks: network A and network B, located both in the Southern Brazil, in comparison with the results obtained by Becker et al (2009). The objective was to identify from participating companies, the influencing factors of maintenance and of insertion in collaborative networks. This is a study of multiple cases. As the surveyed elements were measured only once, it is understood that the research has cross-sectional study of feature, and identifies the qualitative and quantitative way. As result it was found that in both networks, as well as the results of Becker et al (2009), the question "corporate culture" is obstacle to the development of networks, more considerably. The similarities of the results obtained demonstrates the maturity of the network participants at different locations.
