CASE KNOWLEDGE DEVELOPMENT & DISSEMINATION
In our knowledge development efforts, CASE seeks to bridge the gap between business and the social sector, and between theory and practice, so that knowledge will be translated effectively for use by front-line social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and philanthropists. CASE is also committed to building credibility for this field in academia. Thus, some of our work targets more of an academic audience. However, the bulk of our work is aimed either at practitioners or at a mixed audience.
While we have occasionally produced work on other topics, the majority of CASE’s work falls under the following important themes for the nascent field of social entrepreneurship:
The Concept and Process of Social Entrepreneurship: What is the meaning of “social entrepreneurship,” what characterizes social entrepreneurs, and how do they approach identifying and pursuing opportunities for social impact?
Economic Strategies for Social Impact: What is the range of economic strategies and structures social entrepreneurs employ in their pursuit of social impact, including nonprofit, for-profit, and hybrid organizational forms? How can social entrepreneurs make these decisions strategically?
Scaling Social Impact: What strategies do social-purpose organizations employ to increase the impact they produce to better match the magnitude of the social need or problem they seek to address? How can they scale their impact in the most timely, effective, and efficient manner?
Social Entrepreneurship Case Studies: CASE faculty members have produced a range of teaching cases on social entrepreneurship that highlight issues cutting across thematic areas.
Fuqua Faculty Research Projects: Beyond our core areas of knowledge development, CASE works with Fuqua faculty to sponsor research projects that encourage them to apply their expertise to the social sector.
CASE Working Papers : CASE staff and faculty working papers on Social Entrepreneurship.
General Social Entrepreneurship Resources: Select resources beyond CASE on a range of topics relevant to social entrepreneurship.
Community Resources: Resources for the public community on how to get involved with CASE and/or Fuqua students.
