Social enterprises: how the choice of business model can impact international expansion

The number of social enterprises (SE) has risen rapidly in recent years in response to a range of socio-economic and environmental challenges. To tackle problems including poverty, labor and living conditions, social exclusion, and climate change, a variety of business models (including profit and non profit) have emerged. To increase their impact and ensure they are financially sustainable, many experts have argued that it is crucial for such organizations to scale up their activities. One way of doing this is by expanding their services or products internationally, notably in countries where the problems are unaddressed by local policy or market forces.
