Title Exploring the Role of Business Model for Social Entrepreneurship - in the Philippine context -
Author(s) Jönsson, Jayne
Date 2011
English abstract
Scholarly publications and discussions provide differing views on what Social Entrepreneurship is (or is not) that result to a knowledge gap wherefrom this study’s departure point is drawn. Such gap allows interpretation that the adoption of business model can not be fully disregarded as part and parcel of social entrepreneurship (SE). Moreover, entrepreneurial activities within SE is seen by some as a possible source of self-sustenance. Therefore, this research explores and seeks to provide an understanding of the role of business model for social entrepreneurship from a sustainability perspective. Practical examples of social entrepreneurship in the Philippines are used where the context of the practitioners themselves are taken into account. Qualitative research with semi-structured interview that is compatible with social constructionism approach are employed to obtain contextual understanding of the role of business model for SE that this study aims to achieve. The findings indicate, among others, that the organisations studied are Social Enterprises precisely because they are able to apply business principles while doing social mission, and business model is a necessary sustainability ingredient for SE.
