Networks of Social Entrepreneurs India[Research paper] by Alban Leveau-Vallier


The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011

This paper aims at deciphering and mapping the network of social entrepreneurs in India. We consider that social entrepreneurs in India belong to two main groups, competing for the domination of the social entrepreneurship field : the traditional and the global Indian social entrepreneurs. This paper establishes who are the main social entrepreneurs, the more influent, to which group they belong, and what are they characteristics. It proposes a cartography and and a typology of events. As we consider that events are nodes that shape a network, this cartography and typology is also a way of deciphering the network of social entrepreneurs.
