Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach to social entrepreneurship, namely systems map, to determine the path of achievement of a social enterprise's objectives. The paper uses the case-study approach. First, the factors that contribute towards the achievement of an enterprise's objectives are identified from the literature. The applicability of these factors to the case is discussed using primary data. Furthermore, the inter-linkages amongst these factors are determined and verified with data, with their final outcome being a social impact. Social impact-centric system map is the first such attempt to develop a tool for measurement of determinants of the progress of social enterprise.
