Abstract

Social enterprise is a hybrid form of business that operates with business tactics to achieve both business and social objectives. The type of social enterprises can be broadly classified as non-governmental organization-owned (NGO-owned) and privately-owned, and this paper asks whether it might be possible that one of these types of social enterprises performs better than the other in achieving different types of performance given its organizational culture.
