Abstract

In this paper we briefly review social enterprise in the context of India before developing a conceptual framework highlighting the different components that make up a regional social enterprise ecosystem including entrepreneurs, financial and non-financial support, education and research, communication, collaboration and networks, government policy, and the local economy and context. Based on these, we discuss the availability of relevant data before developing a set of indicators for describing the components in different regional ecosystems across India. This paper is the first of a project documenting nine regional social enterprise ecosystems across India.
