Abstract

Social entrepreneurship education (SEE) is gaining increasing attention globally. Our paper focuses on how social entrepreneurship education may offer competencies for mobilising and transforming social entrepreneurs’ cultural, social, economic and symbolic resources. Drawing on an empirical research with entrepreneurship educators and mentors, we generate insights into the significance of developing a range of capitals (using Bourdieuan notion of capital) and the ability to convert capitals into each other for social entrepreneurship education to be effective. In so doing, we respond to the calls for critical thinking in entrepreneurship education and make a contribution by developing a reflexive approach to SEE.
