*Special issue on social entrepreneurship*

The 21st century continues to bring valuable technological advancements,
economic growth, and innovative business opportunities. However, one of the
most pressing challenges for our society is to build and encourage
sustainable business models that diminish the environmental impact,
contribute to social justice challenges such as poverty and inequality, and
achieve competitiveness in highly dynamic markets. Social entrepreneurship
has emerged as a powerful and interdisciplinary phenomenon that promises to
tackle this challenge by focusing attention on organizations that combine
for-profit intentions with a clear social and/or environmental mission
(Dacin et al., 2011; Santos, 2012; Short et al., 2009). Scholarly work in
this area shows an increasing interest in the formation and management of
social enterprises, the contextual conditions that influence social
entrepreneurship, and the entrepreneurs that lead these organizations
(Alvord et al., 2004; Corner & Ho, 2010; Weerawardena & Mort, 2006).
Through this special issue, NEJE aims to promote the progress of this field
by deepening our knowledge of key areas in social entrepreneurship,
including but not limited to:

   - Conceptualizations and literature reviews on social entrepreneurship
   - Measurement of social value and social venture performance
   - Characteristics and motivations of social entrepreneurs
   - Marketing in social enterprises
   - Finance and supply chain in social enterprises
   - Management and growth of social enterprises
   - Market assessment and opportunity recognition in social
   - Methodological issues in social enterprises/entrepreneurship research
   - The role of context in social entrepreneurship
