Social entrepreneurship in a Scandinavian context

Social entrepreneurship in a Scandinavian context

how can it thrive?


During my research the last 4 years in the field of social entrepreneurship I have found that many entrepreneurs struggle with the same issues. I want to explore more closely on external and internal topics related to social entrepreneurship.


The first part will be a scientific analysis of the Scandinavian welfare model. It´s impact is an important issue in the field in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. I will do a comparative research of the three countries.


Secondly I will analyze how the financial system in the Scandinavian countries influence the social entrepreneur's work.
