Impact of the diverse visions of social entrepreneurship on resources-organizations practice[Research paper] by Camille Portejoie


The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011. To write this research paper, Camille Portejoie worked in the center of social economy of the University of Liege.

The dynamic of social entrepreneurship is getting stronger in Europe. The number of organizations, which dedicate themselves to social entrepreneurship support is growing. At the same time, researchers strive to find an unanimous definition of the concept and their works emphasize the many different expectations about social entrepreneurs. The main goals of this research are to enable a better understanding of the different visions of social entrepreneurship among the resources organizations and to give social entrepreneurs tools to make their search for resources more efficient.
