Urmanaviciene, Audrone & Raisiene, Agota. (2018). THE YOUTH’S PERSPECTIVE TO SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT.
A tendency to developing social entrepreneurship that aims at contributing to society’s welfare is evident globally. An increase in youth social entrepreneurship in Lithuania is also observed. However, it is not clear to what extent young entrepreneurs are concerned with social problems. The aim of the paper is to reveal the youth’s view of the possibilities of developing social entrepreneurship in Lithuania. The research shows that youth is insufficiently familiar with the concept of social entrepreneurship and lacks information regarding the possibilities of developing social businesses. The main obstacles to developing social business in Lithuania are the lack of motivation and professional training, negative society’s approach to special social groups, and lack of cooperation among entrepreneurs.
