Overcoming the theoretical duality on social enterprise formation

Abstract: Purpose Nowadays, creation and discovery theories are the two main theoretical approaches supporting the studies on the emergence of enterprises and some scholars analyze these theories in isolation. In addition, studies that investigate the emergence of social enterprises based on these theories together are scarce.

“…Yet, some researchers find this dualism flawed because entrepreneurship presupposes the presence of both a context and the use of imagination (Crawford et al, 2016).

Thus, according to Nascimento and Salazar (2020), entrepreneurial creation and discovery are thus mutually reinforcing processes that together help create new social ventures.…”

“…Social entrepreneurship is defined as a phenomenon that encompasses actors and results; that is, it occurs when an SE, through its operations, creates social value (Nascimento and Salazar, 2020a). SEs operate on social problems (Hockerts, 2017) such as poverty, drug abuse, unemployment, gender discrimination, climate issues, among others, in which social entrepreneurs create and discover opportunities to solve them (Nascimento and Salazar, 2020b). SEs' relevance to society's development is highlighted since they are directly responsible for creating social value (Ruskin et al , 2016).…”
