The present paper gives an introduction to the situation of social entrepreneurs in Germany. In this context, social entrepreneurs find themselves confronted with the measurement of their performance, the description of their risks and a professional documentation of their work. However, there is a lack of standardization in reporting that could be resolved by developing and implementing a generally accepted standard instructing social entrepreneurs how to assess and communicate their performance and influencing factors to an external audience. It furthermore provides a conceptual framework for a reporting that intends to fill the reporting gap in this sector.
