Social Entrepreneurship as a Catalyst for Social Change contains twenty chapters on the impact of social
entrepreneurial ventures within a variety of cultural and national contexts. From Brazil to Croatia, from
Thailand to Greenland, this book is rare in that it provides a rich landscape in which to imagine additional
efforts to bring about positive social change. The case studies cover a broad range of topics with one
common theme-how can we learn from what others are doing in the emerging field of social
entrepreneurship? The various cases will inspire budding entrepreneurs to new heights of awareness to
support the alleviation of poverty in many contexts.
Part Two, Lessons from the Field: How Social Entrepreneurial Companies are Succeeding, discusses the
similarities and differences that social entrepreneurial ventures and other businesses must face to be
successful. Other topics covered include Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans, microfinance, social entrepreneurship education, and development of a
culture of social entrepreneurship.
Part Three, Going from Local to Global, explores the challenges of a social enterprise as it transitions from a national venture to an international one.
The relationship between social entrepreneurship and local business development in places such as Sicily is discussed through case studies. A stage
theory of social venture internationalization is put forth. Research connecting social media and social entrepreneurship is used to illustrate the
importance of social networks in creating positive social change.
Part four, Challenges in Social Entrepreneurship, explores the challenges that social entrepreneurial ventures face. Ethics of intellectual property rights
in social enterprises is a focal topic in this section. Social franchising as an approach to social entrepreneurship is illustrated.
