Abstract

Business model, social entrepreneurship and sustainability are elusive concepts, in the realm of management with no clear and generally accepted definition. A review of the main discourses in the management field of these concepts is presented. The question that drives this study is related to how economic and social values creation can be integrated into a social enterprises business model in a sustainable manner. How these links can be managed, advanced, or innovated in order to improve economic and social value creation. This is called the business case for sustainability. The study put forward a framework that may offer support for further research in this area and aid scholars and practitioners in the field of social entrepreneurship.
