Abstract

Given the general typology of social entrepreneurs by Zahra et al. (2009) as well as the complementary typology by Sundaramurthy et al. (2013), the aim of this paper is to contribute to the discussion and the emerging debate on innovation and entrepreneurship in the context of developing countries by analysing patterns of social entrepreneurship in the case of Mexico. Particularly in developing countries, social problems are more likely to be solved from initiatives that come from the citizens themselves. The main motivation of this paper is to explore and understand social entrepreneurship in a developing country to foster them in the more suitable ways and therefore, to make a step forward to solve the social problems. In order to explore the research questions, a multiple case study approach is used, which considers not only the entrepreneur, but also the environment (Dana and Dana, 2005).
