Challenges and Constraints in Building Business Models to Fight Poverty

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

Today’s grand challenges as sustainability, climate change, and poverty have raised vast attention of academics and practitioners both in developed and developing contexts. The United Nations, the World Bank, and governments as well as academics are converging in the relevance of finding solutions to fight poverty and increase the well-being of all humans (Oxfam 2017;World Bank Group 2018; Cumming et al. 2020). A recent solution to alleviate poverty has been referred to ventures as social entrepreneurship (Shepherd et al. 2020; Si et al. 2020), including all the tentative ways by which businesses are trying to solve the societal issues regarding poverty while also pursuing market dynamics and logics (Mair and Marti 2006; Saebi et al. 2019). This entry, then, has the purpose to effectively present the challenges and constraints that such social enterprises face in building their business model to fight poverty (Seelos and Mair 2005; Santos et al. 2015; Dembek et al. 2019).
