Abstract

Social enterprise is a hybrid form of business that operates with business tactics to achieve both business and social objectives. While the type of social enterprises could be broadly classified as non-governmental organization-owned (NGO-owned) and privately-owned, would it be possible that one type of social enterprises could perform better than another type in achieving different types of performance given its organizational culture? Through in-depth interviews, this study aims at providing evidence on the influence of ownership type of the social enterprises on their business and social performance, and to examine the reasons behind such differences.
