Social Entrepreneurship Intention: Mindfulness Towards a Duality of Objectives

Social Entrepreneurship Intention: Mindfulness Towards a Duality of Objectives Social entrepreneurship is a phenomenon that has recently attracted the attention of scholars. It has been noted that social entrepreneurs develop skills that allow them to successfully cope with current challenges in both social and business settings. Given that attention to dual objectives requires greater focus and awareness, we suggest that mindfulness is an important characteristic of social entrepreneurship intention, along with entrepreneurial training and volunteering experience. This paper explores these relationships through a pilot study with 184 online surveys. The results show that there are positive relationships between mindfulness and entrepreneurship training and social entrepreneurship intention. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Humanistic Management Journal Springer Journals

Abstract

Social entrepreneurship is a phenomenon that has recently attracted the attention of scholars. It has been noted that social entrepreneurs develop skills that allow them to successfully cope with current challenges in both social and business settings. Given that attention to dual objectives requires greater focus and awareness, we suggest that mindfulness is an important characteristic of social entrepreneurship intention, along with entrepreneurial training and volunteering experience. This paper explores these relationships through a pilot study with 184 online surveys. The results show that there are positive relationships between mindfulness and entrepreneurship training and social entrepreneurship intention.
