Social enterprises today give more importance to behaviors that, within the limits of their resources, target quality of life improvement by satisfying the emerging social needs (Manfredi, 2005).
What is the definition of social enterprise? This term "social enterprise" is contested in Taiwan now. People are arguing over the proper application of the term itself.
This study is exploratory. This study claims knowledge through an advocacy/participatory approach and employs an exploratory case study strategy and the mode of generalization is "analytic generation". This study describes the explored results, and conclusions from literature review, multiple-case studies and focus group interviews.
The investigation results of this study will help improve our understanding to the current business model and the leadership model of social enterprises in Taiwan's industry. The study results will also help us to identify the key sustainable factors of a social enterprise and to find the factors that can facilitate a sustainable business model for a social enterprise and to find the adaptive leadership of a sustainable social entrepreneur in Taiwan's industry.
