Typologies for Eco-Inclusive Partnerships
Typologies for partnerships for sustainable development and for social and environmental enterprises: Exploring SEED winners through two lenses
On the basis of in-depth studies of the SEED winners and other research reports, this report concludes that creating a comprehensive typology of the entrepreneurship field and the partnerships within this field is problematic because of the extreme variety of forms and shapes that these partnerships take. Nor has there been sufficient exploration of critical success factors (CSFs) for different types of partnerships. This paper suggests that developing partnership management is one critical success factor for social and environmental entrepreneurs but is not the defining modus operandi. It presents seven other CSFs based on empirical evidence gathered from eco-inclusive enterprises.
