Social entrepreneurship, age and gender: toward a model of social involvement in entrepreneurship

Résumé

How and why does an entrepreneur decide to embark in social entrepreneurship and/or in a sustainable business? While the existing literature suggests that social entrepreneurs tend to be females and/or seniors, our findings indicate that these two groups have important differences; based on the analysis of the verbatim of entrepreneurs, our findings reveal that seniors claim to enter social enterprises with a conscious willingness to help society, while female entrepreneurs are less focused on social implication.
