Abstract

The significant demand for obtaining economic and social performance presents an increasing challenge to the social enterprise community. This study examined the relationships of entrepreneurship, community networking, and economic and social performance in social enterprises using a sample of 235 social enterprises in Korea. Entrepreneurship was positively associated with economic performance; however, an indirect relationship between entrepreneurship and economic performance through community networking was not found. Entrepreneurship was positively associated with social performance through community networking and was not directly associated with social performance. Economic performance was positively associated with social performance. Implications for sustainable social enterprises are discussed.
