Using evidence from the microfinance sector; which known as a leading sector of social entrepreneurship; A Realistic Theory of Social Entrepreneurship: A Life Cycle Analysis of Micro-Finance (PDF) attempts to push the boundaries of research in this field. While latest studies consider that commercial enterprises; not-for-profits and social enterprises are formed by entrepreneurs with different personal identities; they do not describe why these personalities may change before they transform their social enterprises; and change further at the stage of progressing into commercial enterprises. Presenting a theory of development and evolution for social enterprises which explores the dynamics associated with change; impact and growth and an in-depth critical view of funding; motivation and profit; this ebook examines how that influences the social mission and enterprise structure in the wake of hybrid and for-profit models and corporate philanthropy. The author brings to attention the ‘cracks’ in social entrepreneurship and asks how they are being filled; institutionally.
