Abstract

Cross-sector partnering (CSP) among key stakeholders in the economy is essential to achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs) advocated by the United Nations. Social entrepreneurs play a critical role in reaching the SDGs by collaborating with private organisations to increase the overall social value created. This empirical study aims to understand how social enterprises (SEs) collaborate through partnerships to enhance their value aligned to the SDGs. It found that SEs can enhance their social impact by choosing partners that have common values, building trust from early stages of the CSP, and emphasizing inclusiveness of the actors involved. However, using the SDGs for value alignment and measuring impact remains unfulfilled as often social enterprises are not aware of them and find them too corporate.
