Call for papers: 2011 conference on Social Entrepreneurship Perspectives

By the ACRN Journal of Social Entrepreneurship Perspectives.

Theme : Entrepreneurial Context and Processes in Social Enterprises.

The concept of a social enterprise broadly denotes a business model of non-governmental entities fulfilling social issues and needs by using market based approaches and income generation. While the terms Social Enterprise and Social Entrepreneur appear constructed in different cultural and civil society settings, and some institutional players even try to collect the concept for their political agenda, its practical importance has immensely grown throughout the last three decades. 

Social enterprises are, amongst others, found to be (1) traditional non-profit organisations applying more market based and innovative approaches to become less dependent on governmental provisions or (2) the result of entrepreneurial processes starting up new ventures on social opportunities.

This conference focuses on the entrepreneurial context in both. How are entrepreneurial processes like opportunity recognition, innovation, improvisation or effectuation employed, how do they differ in application from traditional for-profit entrepreneurs? What can be said about the entrepreneurial mind-set of social entrepreneurs? Can we find social intrapreneurs?

Abstract submission deadline:  April 1st. (for abstract); July, 1st. 2011 (for full paper)
