Antecedents of Social Enterprise Creation at the Base of the Pyramid

Abstract : The purpose of this study is to investigate the emergence of social entrepreneurial intentions (SEIs) of youngsters at the base of the pyramid (BoP). A small but growing literature is emerging at the intersection of social entrepreneurship (SE) and BoP perspectives. However, little is known about the emergence of SEI in this context. Drawing on a qualitative approach, our findings highlight perceived self-efficacy, self-fulfilment and reciprocity as important drivers of SEIs of youngsters at the BoP. At a practical level, our study also highlights how social support could aid to develop individuals’ perceptions of their own capabilities and help them to project themselves as social entrepreneurs.
