Se configura, además, como un ámbito de actividad que, por su potencial económico y por su valor añadido social, cuentan con grandes potencialidades para seguir contribuyendo de forma positiva el desarrollo económico y social en la región castellana y leonesa en el futuro. This paper discusses the business sub-sector of the social economy in the context of economic development processes taking place at the regional level, using as a reference study the territorial scope of the Autonomous Community of Castilla y Leon. It is intended to highlight the role that businesses play in the social economy in generating employment, as well as to estimate the businesses’ contribution to the revitalization of the regional economy, analyzing various aspects of their economic performance and other specific relevant factors regarding their competitiveness, their innovative activity and social added value. The results reveal a significant contribution of businesses in the social economy sector to job creation and to regional economic growth both in the past and at present. This sector is also becoming an area of activity which, by its economic potential and its social added value, shows great potential for further positive contribution to the economic and social development of the Castilla y León region in the future.
