Entrepreneurial Motivation and Social Enterprises: An Empirical Analysis on Founders of Social Ventures in Bangladesh
AbstractSuccess of market-based entrepreneurial projects embedded with social mission contributed to growing interest to social entrepreneurship in existing literature. The purpose of this study is to examine whether the widely accepted motivational factors influencing entrepreneurial process have similar influence on social entrepreneurs in Bangladesh. We choose the entrepreneurial motivational factors to study Bangladeshi social entrepreneurs. A survey was conducted among the social entrepreneurs and collected data was analyzed. A regression analysis shows that some of widely accepted factors have significant influence while others have less or non-significant influence on Bangladeshi social entrepreneurs. The paper complements the lack of empirical investigation in the behavioral aspect of social entrepreneurship in Bangladesh where a high number of the world¡¯s leading social ventures are formed and expanded world-wide.
