ABSTRACT
Researchers have vigorously pursued study of entrepreneurial intentions in the contexts of both commercial and social entrepreneurship (Krueger 1998, 2005; Mair & Marti 2006). Formal models of behavioral intentions offer sound theory and empirical robustness plus well-defined critical antecedents and intentions still remain the best single predictor of human behavior. However, researchers have also long noted that we need a much better understanding of the linkages between intention and action, especially where deeply embedded in a social context (Krueger 2000; Shepherd & Krueger 2002). We have little systematic, theory-driven knowledge about what precipitates entrepreneurial action, let alone social entrepreneurs. We propose here a model to formally and rigorously study the perceived barriers and triggers to social entrepreneurship and the role of entrepreneurial resilience in that process, using a unique and powerful extreme context: Response to natural disaster. We further propose a large-scale research project to test that model. An in-depth study of entrepreneurial cognitions and resilience among those affected by natural disasters should offer us considerable insight into how entrepreneurial resilience helps social entrepreneurs to respond more effectively to natural disasters. Understanding how entrepreneurs conceptualize barriers (triggers) should be brought into sharp relief by the exigencies of a natural disaster. However, given some of the unique challenges that social entrepreneurs face, this should speak more broadly to the pathways by which social entrepreneurs arrive at -- and implement -- their intent. As such, this study of social entrepreneurship should speak equally to commercial entrepreneurs.
