social entrepreneurship

The antecedents of social entrepreneurship also require careful analysis which might include societal, organizational and individual variables.

The various interactions among these variables could also spark the recognition of different social opportunities and determine how entrepreneurs exploit them.

As research matures, greater attention to theory building on the antecedents of different social ventures becomes a priority.

 the milieu within which these entrepreneurs exist

how they function

why their ventures succeed or fail can enrich theory building on social ventures

contextual variables that influence different social entrepreneurial types

The three types we have discussed in this article could reflect the effective roles social entrepreneurship plays at different points in the life of their ventures. They might signal the growing maturity of social entrepreneurs in learning how to assemble resources and pursue different opportunities.

The personality of the entrepreneur, the social mission to be accomplished, and the munificence of the external environment might also influence the selection of a given type.

Ethical transgressions can hamper entrepreneurs' ability to create social wealth. As a result, the ethical issues associated with different social entrepreneurial types deserve thoughtful analysis.

Under what conditions are these different entrepreneurs willing to cut ethical corners? How can social ventures develop early warning systems of such ethical violations? How can new social ventures curb their founders' potential unethical transgressions? These questions underscore the importance of research on social entrepreneurship and its ethics.
