The focus of this research will be on the question of what kind of collaborative, networking ecosystems can elevate social entrepreneurs that foster innovation for sustainability.
To elaborate this research question we will focus both on a) ecosystems and the requirements for the creation of stimulating ecosystems, as well as on b) the role and capabilities of the social objective-driven entrepreneur on innovation for sustainability that acts as change maker at different levels. The research could give a better insight into the interaction between key elements of ecosystem business settings and the impact of objective-driven social entrepreneurship on the diffusion of Triple Bottom Line thinking in the ecosystem it operates in.
