Abstract:This bachelor thesis will answer the question: What motivates social entrepreneurs to become social entrepreneurial in the rural area of Twente? To answer the question, ten entrepreneurs from the rural area of Twente were interviewed in this case study. These interviews were analyzed by a self-constructed motivation model. The self-constructed motivation-model is used as a supportive tool for answering the research question. Social entrepreneurs in the rural area of Twente are motivated by ‘doing’ and adding social value, where society will take advantage of. The model provides motivations based on the state of the art literature on motivations to become social entrepreneurial, and the ten interviews with the social entrepreneur from the rural area of Twente, which is located in the Netherlands. Another goal of the motivation-model is to provide a more graphical overview of motivations to become social entrepreneurial, as an addition to the existing literature on social entrepreneurs. The thesis has also addressed potential policy implications as well as further opportunities for scientific research on motivations of social entrepreneurs to become social entrepreneurial.
