Algunos otros estudios han abordado los temas de las competencias empresariales (Bienkowska, Klofsten, & Rasmussen, 2016; Rasmussen, Mosey, & Wright, 2014) la capacidad de absorción (Sönmez, 2013), los rasgos de personalidad (Krueger, Reilly, & Carsrud, 2000;Madsen, Neergaard, & Ulhøi, 2008), la influencia de los antecedentes familiares y la experiencia previa en las intenciones emprendedoras de profesores, estudiantes, investigadores, investigadores principales y personal administrativo de las universidades (Gird & Bagraim, 2008;Obschonka, Silbereisen, & Schmitt-Rodermund, 2010;Ozgul & Kunday, 2015). No obstante, aún se requieren estudios que aborden las problemáticas de la innovación en economías emergentes
(Roncancio, Dentchev, Guerrero, & Diaz Gonzalez, 2021). ... In this study, the quadruple-helix theory of innovation by Carayannis et al. Is used as a theoretical lens. (2016) to capture which are the factors that determine the success of collaborations between the university, industry, the state and society, in favor of sustainability. To do this, 11 individuals belonging to the innovation ecosystem of the department of Caldas were interviewed, and grounded theory was used as a strategy for exploratory qualitative analysis. Among the findings, it is worth mentioning that the factors that would determine the success of collaborations between the actors of the tetra helix of innovation are: Improving the scientific infrastructure, having a good system of incentives for collaboration, establishing a paradigm shift in the private and industrial sector, that there is to be an open information model for all interest groups, and that the goals of the actors are aligned.

Despite their important contribution to the social economy, the processes of establishing new nonprofit organizations have not been systematically examined. The survival of new nonprofits is an important issue since if they cease to exist it is a loss to the economy as well as to community. It is well known that new for-profit businesses are vulnerable to failure in the first few years. It would
... [Show full abstract] be reasonable to assume the mortality rate for new nonprofits may be comparable to that for business since the establishment processes are similar, but the survival of new nonprofits has received scant attention in the research literature. This paper examines the relevance for emerging nonprofits of elements identified as contributing to the survival of new business ventures, including reference to the limited literature on nonprofits. Bruderl, Preisendorfer et al et al. (1992) suggest three perspectives are significant for early survival of business ventures: the characteristics of the founder/s (human capital); conditions in the environment of a new firm (population ecology); and attributes, structural characteristics and strategies of the new business (strategic adaptation). Characteristics of the founding team have been well explored in the literature. Age, social networks, access to financial capital, experience in a similar business, and leadership experience in management roles all enhance survival of new ventures. Gender is significant: fewer women start new firms, and firms started by women have a higher failure rate even though women entrepreneurs tend to be a decade older at startup (Carter, Williams et al. 1997; Reynolds 1999). Population ecology and macroeconomic factors which may be relevant include the location of the venture and density of competition for resources (Marwell and McInerney 2005). Successful strategic adaptation to the environment reduces mortality but despite its significance surprisingly little literature considers how new ventures design strategies, and most research is conducted well after the firm is established which may reduce the validity. Previous business experience and industry know-how improves judgment and the development of more strategic responses in business operations. The literature has a strong focus on new venture growth as a measure of success, but it is not clear whether the factors that enhance one measure of performance, such as survival, are the same as those that lead to others, such as growth or profitability (Cooper 1993). Business growth strategies need to be aligned with the external market and the product and industry life cycle (Agarwal and Audretsch 2001). Since the nonprofit arena is extremely diverse, it is warranted to examine the significant elements that affect survival of new ventures in the more limited context of emerging social entrepreneurship ventures. Social entrepreneurship is a hybrid organizational form that uses business models to achieve an identified social mission to improve a target group or locality. Hence social entrepreneurship offers a bridge between the business and nonprofit arenas. Weerawardena and Sullivan Mort (2006) identify that 'social entrepreneurship strives to achieve social value creation… [but is]....responsive to and constrained by environmental dynamics.' The overall question addressed in this research examines the significant elements that contribute to emerging social entrepreneurship ventures surviving and becoming sustainable so the organization can to continue to offer a service that is of value to a target group within the population. Methodology/Key Propositions It is proposed that strategic interactions with the environment are significant for emerging nonprofit ventures to survive (Proposition 1). Elements identified in the literature as being important in the establishment of new business ventures may be applicable for emerging nonprofit ventures operating with a social entrepreneurship framework (Proposition 2).

Purpose – The objective of this paper is to identify the key factors for successful creation of social value using the social business model (SBM) as an explanatory framework.
Design/methodology/approach – This study follows the Krippendorff’s and Gioia’s Methodology seeking the rigor while examining the selected case study – a social cooperative named La Paranza, in the city of Naples in the
... [Show full abstract] south of Italy. In doing so, the SBM canvas is used to present the research’s results in a systematic way.
Findings – The existence of a strong “identity” with the local context, the “enthusiasm and the wish to change things”, the presence of a “visionary”, acting as an orchestrator, and able to provide for responses to the local needs were identified as key factors in
the successful creation of social value in the examined case.
Research limitations/implications – The main research limits stem from the single case study methodology approach, which embodies the researchers’ subjectivity. A comparative study based on the collection of multiple successful case studies is therefore suggested to develop a generalization of the key drivers underlying the process of social value creation.
Originality/value – The study’s originality results from its use of the SBM framework in presenting a successful example of social value creation. The examined empirical evidence is also original in itself, mainly because of its inner uniqueness as a new and
innovative formula: this allows an in-depth investigation and the inspiration for new ideas in the ground of SBM and, in a broader sense, in the field of social innovation and social value creation. Read more Article Full-text available April 2019 · Sustainability
Sustainable entrepreneurs intend to create environmental and social value while they build their financially viable business. With this in mind, they are embedded in multiple institutionalized value systems (i.e., institutional logics) that provide them with different, often contradictory values, beliefs, and guiding principles. Adhering to these value systems and integrating multiple forms of
... [Show full abstract] value into a coherent business model is a key task for sustainable entrepreneurs, yet current efforts lack insight into how this can be achieved. To address this, the article utilizes the institutional logic perspective in conjunction with the componential approach to business models. By analyzing a longitudinal in-depth case study, this article develops a novel theoretical model linking shifts in the entrepreneur’s perception of institutional logic to business model alterations, and emphasizes the underlying mechanisms and behavior of the sustainable entrepreneur. Sustainable entrepreneurs integrate and blend institutional logic through multiple business model transitions, which are characterized by a personal reorientation of the entrepreneur and new practices to implement change. Furthermore, our findings show that the entrepreneur’s habitus, the pre-change business model, and the change-specific dominant logic are integral and previously overlooked concepts that contextualize their business model transition. The findings and discussion advance the theoretical and practical understanding of the processes through which sustainable entrepreneurs integrate multiple forms of value into their business models. With that, the article contributes to research on sustainable entrepreneurship, institutional logic and business models. View full-text Research Full-text available October 2016

The circular economy, which takes inspiration from the ‘waste not’ functioning of the ecosystem to propose more resource efficient production and consumption patterns, has attracted the interest of different stakeholders recently. Yet very little is known about the companies that put circular principles at the heart of doing business and their ecological and social sustainability outcomes.
... [Show full abstract] Circular entrepreneurship, conceptualised as the processes of exploration and exploitation of opportunities in the circular economy domain, is just emerging in the circular economy literature and the empirical evidence about how it is implemented through innovative business models is still limited. Our research illustrates and describes the entrepreneurial process and orientation from a business model perspective of a circular firm - Wasted Apple - in the British drinks and beverage industry. We find that entrepreneurial value proposition, value creation and delivery and value capture define our case circular business model. Entrepreneurial orientation is also characterised by embeddedness: being entrepreneurial in the circular economy means to create value for the broader system an organisation is part of. Furthermore, the pursuit of ecological and social value is central to the logic of value creation and typifies the entrepreneurial process. Read more January 2015 · SSRN Electronic Journal
The aims of this book chapter are to give an overview of and to add clarity to the emerging field of sustainable entrepreneurship research. As a disparity in the terminology and understanding of sustainable entrepreneurship exists, the motivation is to give an answer to the following (deceivingly simple) question: What is sustainable entrepreneurship? To this end a systematic literature review
... [Show full abstract] was conducted, in order to thoroughly present and evaluate the intellectual territory of the nascent research stream. The review resulted in 43 papers considered to be relevant for the field of sustainable entrepreneurship. As a synthesis and result of our review we suggest a definition of sustainable entrepreneurship as the scholarly examination of how opportunities to bring into existence future goods and services are recognized, developed, and exploited by whom, and with what economic, social and ecological gains. The definition reflects five important aspects of sustainable entrepreneurship, which have been identified in the systematic review: The sources of opportunities; a process-focused perspective; the individual sustainable entrepreneur; economic, ecological and social value creation; as well as the transition to a sustainable society. We hope that the findings of our systematic literature review and the suggested definition of sustainable entrepreneurship are a step forward to enhance relevant and yet rigorous research in the nascent field of sustainable entrepreneurship.

The creation of social value through entrepreneurial ventures occurs in various dimensions, which are often difficult to compare. From an economic standpoint, however, value creation requires resources and activities that lead to expenditures. The sustainability of social ven-tures, therefore, depends on how these expenditures are financed. We develop a general framework in which business models
... [Show full abstract] of diverse social ventures can be analyzed and catego-rized. Using a gallery of real-life case studies, we illustrate that social business models can be characterized and ordered by the degree to which they monetize social value creation and the level of generated market revenues in excess of expenditures. Our analysis reveals a positive correlation between the monetization of social value creation and financial output, and it shows that relatively simple changes in the business model can have a significant impact on monetization and market performance. Our framework thus yields several strategic implications for business modeling.
