Social Entrepreneurship in Assam-Drivers and Roadblocks

Rajdeep Deb

Social entrepreneurship is an important tool to plug in the gap between socially desirable conditions and the existing reality and to offer realistic solution to them when the market and the public sector do not. Assam is a seriously unequal society that has become more unequal over the last few decades. This inequality is linked to extensive social problems, all of which create huge costs to society, both in economic terms and in terms of the quality of life in Assam and the well-being of its citizens. Although as one of the rapidly growing states in India, it has witnessed an impressive growth in social entrepreneurial activities. By recognizing the fact that social entrepreneurship is happening in the not-for-profit sector in Assam, this paper attempts to identify and understand the drivers that motivate and lead individuals to pursue social entrepreneurship in Assam. Also the paper uncovers the factors hindering the social entrepreneurial dynamics in the State. To answer the questions, the researcher collected information from various secondary sources. Social entrepreneurs in Assam need a systematic way to get to a business model most likely to work in the state.
