Social Entrepreneurship Regulation in Local Context

Author(s): Natalia N. Peshkova

The established system of social services for the population does not always meet modern market requirements. This paper is devoted to the analysis of social entrepreneurship regulation in Tyumen region (Russian Federation). Thus, 450 representatives of public and business sectors were interviewed at the end of 2017 within the research community «Social responsibility of business». Based on the received responses factors affecting the efficiency of commercial activities in the field of social entrepreneurship were determined. It was established that social enterprises do not consider the incentives to develop and improve, which leads to the increasing of gap between the producer and the consumer of social services. In the absence of competition, state institutions are not interested in quality products, because they have permanent and stable market. The authors describe the possibility of transition from non-profit organizations to commercial enterprises.
