There is a general consensus that social entrepreneurship refers to those initiatives that primarily focus on the creation of social value. To date, academic interest in social entrepreneurship has focused on practitioner events and empirical work has focused on good practices and success stories of social entrepreneurs that act as ‘change makers’. This paper performs an in depth process analysis of an award-wining social entrepreneur that faced bankruptcy 2,5 years after its successful start-up.
