dc.description.abstract How do you recognise a social entrepreneur? There is much contestation on whether social entrepreneurs exhibit particular characteristics. This seminar reports on a small scale study conducted in Sydney, which reported on how three young social entrepreneurs and others involved in the development of entrepreneurial projects aimed at positive social change conceptualise the social entrepreneur. The seminar will provide personal insights into how young social entrepreneurs perceive themselves through the projects that they have undertaken and the motivations that have given impetus to their actions. Discussion will centre on the commonalities in the experience of being a social entrepreneur, including the importance placed on key champions in recognizing the skills and capabilities of the individual, the capacity for these young people to ‘do things differently’, to display drive and commitment to a social mission and the significance of the support of friends and family and of others. en
