Social Entrepreneurship
Working towards Greater Inclusiveness


© 2016 | 276 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

This book explores social entrepreneurship vis-à-vis participation of marginalized communities.

Based on in-depth case studies that highlight the efforts of selected third sector organisations, this book brings to light the emergence of social entrepreneurship in India. The cases focus on the roles of locally  established methods and community participation in carrying out sustainable social transformation.

Social Entrepreneurship: Working Towards Greater Inclusiveness contributes to both practice and theory in social entrepreneurship. It also sets out modalities for future work in the field, examining the various processes adopted by social enterprises in their functioning and delivering of services to address the concerns of exclusion.

This book nicely illustrates the challenges of organizations that tackle problems grounded in particular normative and power relations that cannot be targeted just by technical innovations and quick fixes.

Christian Seelos,
Stanford University Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society

This book and the case studies it contains contribute valuable insight into how social enterprise pioneers in India have experimented, learned and, in the author’s words, started to create much needed alternative social realities.

This book analyses Indian social enterprises to yield valuable lessons for successful, sustainable, context-sensitive and inclusive development more generally.

Hilary Silver,
Professor of Sociology and Urban Studies, Brown University

Social Entrepreneurship is the combination of social mission with an image of business like discipline, innovation and determination commonly associated with, for instance, the high-tech pioneers of Silicon Valley… the book is based on in-depth case studies that highlight the efforts of selected third sector organisations and brings to light the emergence of social entrepreneurship in India.

Free Press Journal, 24 September 2017

The book is a study of the emergence of social enterprises in India, the environment they work in and the constraints they face… [It] is a timely study and worth reading.
