Abstract

This study tests potential pathways to social entrepreneurship by assessing the influence of solution-focused reflection among individuals who participated in international service. Using a logistic regression to analyze 245 survey responses, findings support the hypothesis that solution-focused reflection is significantly related to social entrepreneurship. This finding is consistent with the behavioral theory of social entrepreneurship opportunity and the creativity model of opportunity recognition. Implications suggest opportunities for future research on ways for institutions to structure operations to help entrepreneurs identify pathways to social action.
