Scope/Description:

To date much of social entrepreneurship scholarship has emerged from business schools and has as a consequence tended to focus on organizational strategic and financial issues. The perspective has largely been to use business models to explore social innovation and particularly social enterprise social entrepreneurship that moves towards selffunding. The approach has largely been what can social entrepreneurship learn from business perspectives. This is an important part of the scholarly picture but the Journal of Social Entrepreneurship has a far broader remit.In this journal social entrepreneurship is defined as having four key componentssociality innovation market orientation and hybridity. First sociality is a focus on a defined social purpose or benefit to society that is carefully measured. This could be identifiable by organization type such as cooperatives or charities or sectors like healthcare or education. Second innovation is seen as either creative or destructive changes to social or economic systems. Third market orientation places social entrepreneurship in a broader competitive landscape of funding outputs accountability and legitimacy all focused on a relentless effort to improve performance and increase social impact. Finally social entrepreneurship is defined by its tendency to operate in hybrid spaces between the public privatecommercial and civil society sectorsoften in the form of hybrid organizational forms such as cooperatives or social enterprises. This definition of social entrepreneurship includes both for and notforprofit organizations as well as public sector bodies. However it excludes all organizationsthe primary purpose of which is profitmaximisation irrespective of whether they also aim to do social good as this falls under quite the separate heading of Corporate Social Responsibility.
