Abstract:     
The concept of social entrepreneurship is discussed and examined for its potential to support sustainable value creation. A detailed case study of bracNet provides an example of shared value creation. bracNet is a for-profit enterprise in Bangladesh aiming to close the digital divide globally and regionally. New business models and cross-sectoral partnerships allow bracNet to implement a social and financial value creation strategy. Key for success seems to be the shared ownership of bracNet, by BRAC, a non-profit organization, and various for profit entities (including VC's, industrial conglomerates and Hedgefunds).
