Abstract:In this study, the business models of social enterprises is researched to compare cost-effectiveness among them. For this, different analysis are used. Quantitative to measure the social impact to the customers and qualitative research to analyze the business models of the organizations. After doing this, these two analysis are compared and complemented to each other to state several propositions about which business model would have the best return on subsidy. The research is done in different social enterprises, within different areas. This makes the comparison interesting. Questionnaires are given to the customers of the organizations and interviews are done with the CEOs of the organizations. Furthermore, the business models are completed with information from different databases. This research will contribute to business model theories about non-profits. Since this concept is not studied that much, this will be an interesting research. Furthermore, this research will give several suggestions to the organizations to be more cost-effective. Therefore, this study will be interesting and helpful for the organizations as well. This study is done in the municipality Oldenzaal, in which I was supervised by the manager of the team I was working in, Derk van Wolde and head manager of the subsidies Gabriella Franceschina. My supervision on the UT was done by Michel Ehrenhard. He helped me deciding how to deal best with this subject. And the business model theory was interesting and new to do this research.
