Introduction
I'm an assistant professor in entrepreneurship at Aarhus University in Denmark. I also work as an associated scholar at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin. My research interests focus on social entrepreneurship, business models, social venture growth, and sustainability, and my research work is inspired by my field work with organizations such as Ashoka.

We develop four generic business model designs based on two fundamental decisions: Should value be created for or with the target group, and should income be generated through market revenues or positive externalities? Journa...

The sustainability of social ven-tures, therefore, depends on how these expenditures are financed. We deve...
