Although innovation has the potential of offering social entrepreneurial initiatives great possibilities to focus on social issues, it appears that the role of innovations within social entrepreneurship has been studied only to a very limited extent. As a contribution to covering this gap in the literature, the relation between core innovations within social enterprises and both the profit expectations and sustained competitive advantage viewed from a resource-based perspective are studied in this paper.
