The project focuses upon the School’s start-up programme and adopts a survey instrument to investigate how enrolment at the school and completion of the programme has influenced the current-status of alumni.
The project specifically looks to investigate whether social enterprise is achieving its broader social goal(s). Is social enterprise achieving financial goals (such as sustainability and growth targets)? How do social entrepreneurs measure their successes (aims) and have they achieved these? How has the ‘School for Social Enterprise’ assisted in defining the aims of entrepreneurs, measuring success, and achieving overarching objectives?
This study focuses upon the social enterprise network in Central Scotland. Adopting a snowball sampling technique, this research will identify and target prominent social entrepreneurs for in-depth interview. Content and narrative analysis are used to explore the motivations of social entrepreneurs, their key role-models, supporters and mentors.
