Business Modelling for the Social Entrepreneurship Sphere
This project aims to transform a non-profit organization into the social enterprise. The main point of such transformation is organizational business model change: profit is not the key goal for the non-profit organization, but it is a viable resource for the socially oriented firm. In the academic community, there are a limited number of this kind of studies. Because of it, the empirical research presents an additional value for the development of the concepts “business model” and “social entrepreneurship”. The results are especially actual for Russian non-commercial companies. We apply a case study method to analyze general and particular aspects of such transformation and organizational analysis to define the combination of external and internal factors, which could support the transformation. Thus, the research proposes the road map for the adoption of a new social business model in the organization.
