Social Enterprise from the Author: Marthe Nyssens. In one of its previous books, the EMES European Research Network traced the most significant developments in 'social entrepreneurship' emerging inside the third sector in Europe. Building upon that seminal work, this volume presents the results of an extensive research project carried out over a four-year period of a comparative analysis of 160 social enterprises across eleven EU countries. It breaks new ground in both its articulation of multidisciplinary theoretical frameworks and its rigorous analysis of empirical evidence based on a homogenized data collection methodology. Looking at work intergration, it is structured around a number of key themes (multiple goals and multiple stakeholders, multiple resources, trajectories of workers, public policies) developed through a transversal European analysis, and is illustrated with short country experiences that reflect the diversity of welfare models across Europe. With contributions from an impressive list of academics, all members of the EMES European Research Network, this rich follow-up volume to The Emergence of Social Enterprise is essential reading for academics, researchers and students in the fields of the third sector and social policies.

Social Enterprise Law from the Author: Dana Brakman Reiser. Social enterprises represent a new kind of venture, dedicated to pursuing profits for owners and benefits for society. Social Enterprise Law provides tools that will allow them to raise the capital they need to flourish. Social Enterprise Law weaves innovation in contract and corporate governance into powerful protections against insiders sacrificing goals such as environmental sustainability in the pursuit of short-term profits. Creating a stable balance between financial returns and public benefits will allow social entrepreneurs to team up with impact investors that share their vision of a double bottom line. Brakman Reiser and Dean show how novel legal technologies can allow social enterprises to access capital markets, including unconventional sources such as crowdfunding. With its straightforward insights into complex areas of the law, the book shows how a social mission can even be shielded from the turbulence of an acquisition or bankruptcy. It also shows why, as the metrics available to measure the impact of social missions on individuals and communities become more sophisticated, such legal innovations will continue to become more robust. By providing a comprehensive survey of the U.S. laws and a bold vision for how legal institutions across the globe could be reformed, this book offers new insights and approaches to help social enterprises raise the capital they need to flourish. It offers a rich guide for students, entrepreneurs, investors, and practitioners.

Social Entrepreneurship from the Author: Cynthia Tellenbach. Social Enterprise als Organisationen, die zur Erreichung einer zentralen sozialen Mission eine Gesch√§ftst√§tigkeit aufnehmen, sind gepr√§gt von einer dualen Zielsetzung und unterliegen daher gleichzeitig einer sozialen sowie einer √∂konomischen Logik. Diese Bachelorarbeit geht der Frage nach, mit welchen Herausforderungen sich Social Enterprise aufgrund der dualen Zielsetzung konfrontiert sehen und welche Strategien sie anwenden, um dieses Spannungsfeld zu durchbrechen. Die Literaturanalyse zeigt, dass Forscher die Koexistenz der beiden oft als gegens√§tzlich betrachteten Identit√§ten in Social Enterprise kontrovers diskutieren: konzeptionelle Arbeiten pl√§dieren daf√ľr, dass gerade die F√§higkeit, die beiden Logiken zu vereinen eines der zentralen Charakteristika von Social Enterpreneurship darstellt. Empirische Untersuchungen stellen dagegen fest, dass es in Social Enterprise zu Spannungen zwischen √∂konomischen und sozialen Zielen kommt und die Gefahr eines Social Mission Drifts besteht. Die empirische Fallstudie mit vier prozessorientierten Social Enterprise im Bereich der Arbeitsintegration ergibt, dass in Social Enterprise tats√§chlich Spannungen auftreten. Beeinflusst wird das sozio-√∂konomische Spannungsfeld durch das gew√§hlte Finanzierungsmodell, den Konjunkturzyklus sowie die Leistungsanforderungen des Wirtschaftssystems. Es wird gezeigt, dass Spannungsfelder nicht wie h√§ufig angenommen durch die Integration beider Ziele und Erschaffung einer neuen sozio-√∂konomischen Identit√§t aufgel√∂st werden k√∂nnen. Vielmehr w√§hlen Social Enterprise zum Management der dualen Identit√§t eine Strategie der Aggregation, bei der eine soziale sowie eine √∂konomische Identit√§t beibehalten werden und Synergien zwischen ihnen genutzt werden.

The Emergence Of Social Enterprise from the Author: Carlo Borzaga. What are the characteristics of social enterprises? What are the future prospects for social enterprises? What do social enterprises contribute?

Gr Ndung Von Social Enterprise Start Ups In Der Schweiz from the Author: Aline D√§uber. Aufgrund des vermehrten Aufkommens von Social Entrepreneurship in der Schweiz sowie der gleichzeitigen Zunahme in der Nachfrage nach nachhaltigen Produkten und Dienstleistungen hierzulande untersucht die vorliegende Arbeit, welche Motive, Anreize und Ziele zur Gr√ľndung von Social Enterprise Start-Ups in der Schweiz f√ľhren. Die Analyse von zwanzig Leitfadeninterviews mit Gr√ľndern von Social Enterprise Start-Ups ergibt, dass sechs Motive, vier Anreize und vier Ziele mit der Gr√ľndung zusammenh√§ngen und dass zwei Argumente f√ľr die Wahl der Schweiz als Gr√ľndungsland gefunden werden k√∂nnen. Ein Vergleich dieser Ergebnisse mit solchen von bestehenden Studien aus anderen L√§ndern sowie der vorhandenen Literatur zeigt, dass in den meisten Bereichen gewisse Parallelen auftauchen, jedoch auch einige Eigenheiten vorhanden sind. Vor dem Hintergrund, dass die Schweiz ein entwickeltes und gl√ľckliches Land ist und es erstaunen mag, dass sich Gr√ľnder hierzulande gesellschaftlichen Herausforderungen widmen, werden gewisse Annahmen diskutiert, die sich auf die spezifischen Resultate der Schweiz beziehen. Die Untersuchung von Motivationsfaktoren und Zielen im Zusammenhang mit der Gr√ľndung von Social Enterprise Start-Ups ist die erste ihrer Art in der Schweiz und tr√§gt somit zur Forschung, zur Lehre und zur Praxis im Bereich Social Entrepreneurship bei, wobei auch wichtige Forschungsans√§tze f√ľr die Zukunft aufgezeigt werden.

Community Co Production from the Author: Jane Farmer. Governments around the globe are promoting co-production and community social enterprise as policy strategies to address the need for local, 21st century service provision but can small communities engage spontaneously in social enterprise and what is the true potential for citizens to produce services? This book addresses a clutch of contemporary societal challenges including: aging demography and the consequent need for extended care in communities; public service provision in an era of retrenching welfare and global financial crises; service provision to rural communities that are increasingly 'hollowed out' through lack of working age people; and, how best to engender the development of community social enterprise organizations capable of providing high quality, accessible services. It is packed with information and evidence garnered from research into the environment for developing community social enterprise and co-producing services; how communities react to being asked to co-produce; what to expect in terms of the social enterprises they can produce; and, how to make them happen. This book is an antidote to the rhetoric of optimistic governments that pronounce co-production as a panacea to the challenges of providing local services and by drawing on the evidence from a 'real-life' international study will make policymakers more savvy about their aspirations for co-production, give service professionals practical strategies for working with communities, fill a gap in the academic evidence about community, as opposed to individual, social enterprise and reassure community members that they can deliver services through community social enterprise if the right partnerships and strategies are in place. Community CoProduction will appeal to students and scholars over a broad range of disciplines including development, entrepreneurship, public and social policy, economics and regional studies.
