The Rise of Social Entrepreneurship Suggests a Possible Future for Global ... - Forbes | Impact Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

As the first Internet stock bubble neared its popping point in 1999, IBM chief executive Lou Gerstner famously dismissed the dot-com start-ups of his day as “fireflies before the storm—all stirred up, throwing off sparks.” The Internet would truly achieve its disruptive potential, Gerstner argued, when thousands of big institutions around the world started using the new communication and technology platform to transform themselves. He was right. Although many of the dot-com players did not survive the 2000 market crash in technology stocks, they were indeed harbingers of a coming business revolution.

The emerging Dutch social enterprise sector

The emerging Dutch social enterprise sector | Impact Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

The report 'Opportunities for the Dutch Social Enterprise Sector', highlighted several barriers for growth. First of all, like in most countries, social enterprise models are relatively unknown and ill understood by the general public. Social impact has traditionally been a non-profit or governmental affair, so there is an inherent distrust of any entrepreneur who tackles a social mission with a business model. Then there is the problem of access to capital. Patient growth capital has been scarcely available thus far. And finally, most importantly, the Dutch government has done very little to support the sector. Forcing social impact entrepreneurs to construct complicated entities to capture their social mission.

Yet change is underway and the glimpses of an emerging movement have become apparent in the last year.
