Author(s): Shuhui Pan

This article delivers a comprehensive understanding of social entrepreneurship in social venture with the lens of Hartmut Rosa’s resonance theory by analysing the intense conflicts inside an elite Chinese social organization in its poverty reduction practice. From the individual aspect to the organization’s structural aspect, the author argues that the three dimensional perspective of social entrepreneurship would provide good insights on the establishment of the axes of resonance when it encounters obstructions due to the continuing alienation. Humanity venture which is defined as the creation of shared inner value system in an organization in the three dimensional perspective would become the institutional condition to facilitate the transformation of alienation and resonance on social entrepreneurship in the coexistence of social improvement region (SIEV) and social transformation region (STEV) in one organization.
