How can we stimulate entrepreneurial activities aimed at tackling societal challenges in an effective way?

How do social entrepreneurs address societal challenges, and what is their role in comparison to that of government and corporations? How can they face the challenges in making their ventures work, in particular when it comes to scaling their solutions? Social entrepreneurs address societal challenges adopting a business model. They come up with innovative solutions to complex problems related to e.g. inclusive labor markets, waste, and global value chains.

The Utrecht University Social Entrepreneurship Initiative develops and disseminates new knowledge jointly with other key actors involved in ecosystems for social entrepreneurship. It is powered by the research expertise that resides in Utrecht University's strategic theme Institutions for Open Societies.
