Descripción
The principal characteristic of social entrepreneurship is the creation of businesses with the objectives of solving social issues and generating positive impacts in the community. In recent years there has been an increase in the literature addressing these types of businesses, although the number of works dealing specifically with how they are funded is quite limited, and even more so in the case of those which focus on alternative financing options such as crowdfunding. Therefore, the main objective of this paper is to assess the use of crowdfunding as a source of finance for social enterprises. Specifically, the paper analyzes social entrepreneurs? perceptions of crowdfunding, the reasons that drive or impede its use, the different information available, and its suitability for social enterprises. A study is carried out on social entrepreneurs in Spain using the Delphi method, especially recommended as a methodology for exploratory studies such as this. The results show that crowdfunding as a means of financing is still relatively unknown and little used by social entrepreneurs, and the analysis explains why this is so.
