Macro-level Factors Influence on Social Enterprises’ Operations: Social Enterprises Perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper


The recognition and expansion of social entrepreneurship as an approach to address social and environmental issues has increased the research efforts on various topics to complement the field but has not extensively investigated the level of influence of the macro-level factors on social enterprises’ operations. To address this gap, we used quantitative methods, particularly partial least squares structural equation modelling based on institutional theory, to help us explain a) the relationship between the factors, b) the macro-level factors development accelerators and c) the macro-level factors' influence on social enterprises’ operations. We respond to the calls from academics to examine the interaction between social enterprises’ operations and their environment for more quantitative research and the use of novel approaches with empirical data. Our findings suggest that institutional support and funding are accelerators for macro factors development and mostly influence social enterprises’ operations.
