przedsiębiorczość, społeczna przedsiębiorczość, teoria społecznej przedsiębiorczości


entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, theory of social entrepreneurship


Celem artykułu jest przedstawienie społecznej przedsiębiorczości jako przedmiotu badań w ujęciu zaproponowanym przez H.E. Aldricha. Społeczna przedsiębiorczość jest w niniejszym artykule analizowana z perspektywy sześciu kryteriów: sieci kontaktów (social networking), możliwości publikacji (publication opportunities), szkoleń i kształcenia (training and mentoring), fundacji i źródeł finansowania (major foundations and funding sources), wzmocnienia tożsamości dyscypliny (reinforcing the identity of social entrepreneurship research) oraz wpływu globalizacji (globalizing forces). W oparciu o analizę literatury przedmiotu formułowana jest teza, że społeczna przedsiębiorczość znajduje się jedynie na początkowym etapie stawania się specjalnością naukową.


The aim of this paper is to assess the development of social entrepreneurship as an academic field using the criteria defined by H.E. Aldrich with respect to entrepreneurship. Consequently, research on social entrepreneurship is appraised based upon: social networking, publication opportunities, training and mentoring, major foundations and funding sources, reinforcing the identity of social entrepreneurship research and globalising forces. It is argued here that social entrepreneurship remains at the very preliminary stage of becoming a separate academic discipline.
