In recent years, many studies have been conducted on collaboration networks, however, the process of evolution and network creation has been considered in a small number of studies. In this context, comprehensive identification and analysis of the challenges in the network forming process are important in order to solve them and to stabilize the network. In this research, an active collaboration network in the field of medical equipment that engineered by a Hub in 2009 and consisting of a large company, a small and medium-sized company, two subcontractors, three universities, a start-up, an accelerator and a venture capital fund, was studied. The presence of diverse members in the network is the basis for the emergence of various challenges and allows for a comparative analysis between them. For process-centric and rich analyze of information that gathered from deep interviews and supporting documents, a qualitative approach and case study were used. Finally, after analyzing the structure and framework of the network, 4 collaboration models and 28 different challenges were identified in the network, and in order to provide an analysis, those 28 different challenges (based on their existence or absence in each of the 4 identified collaboration models) divided into 7 categories and analyzed
