In this paper we briefly review social enterprise in the context of
India before developing a conceptual framework highlighting the
different components that make up a regional social enterprise ecosystem
(including entrepreneurs, financial and non-financial support, education
and research, communication, collaboration and networks, government
policy, and the local economy and context). Based on these, we discuss
the availability of relevant data before developing a set of indicators
for describing the components in different regional ecosystems across
India. This paper is the first of a project documenting nine regional
social enterprise ecosystems across India.
