Social Enterprise in Developing Countries: The Case of Developing Countries – Social Entrepreneurship and Startup
Monika Nova (Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-2714-6.ch010

Relying on her ample professional practice, the author believes that many a good idea can be translated into a successful social enterprise project. The chapter will therefore provide an example of good practice. Supported by an already accomplished qualitative research and many years of relevant practice, the author argues that social enterprise and start-up may lay the groundwork for social recognition, self-determination and improved living generally. The persons involved in such enterprise will also enhance their social status and become fully or partially independent of foreign developmental assistance.
