Sažetak
Social entrepreneurship in Croatia has in recent years, mostly through the initiatives of non-profit organizations, constantly been growing. Until the emergence of social enterprises, entrepreneurship was not perceived as an activity that will contribute to the implementation of innovative solutions addressed at social problems while still generating profit. At the same time, social entrepreneurship promises sustainable community development as it includes economic, environmental and social dimensions in its activities. Wider public support towards social enterprises is one of the reasons why this form of entrepreneurship has constantly been growing even in the economic crisis that has affected Croatia particularly strong. Despite, many barriers to their growth still remain and are almost the same as those in traditional enterprises, although even more exaggerated. The lack of management experience among social entrepreneurs, lack of education, access to finance as well as numerous administrative and legal barriers are the most common. It is necessary to overcome challenges and identify new opportunities through efficient, socially responsible and sustainable enterprises which will to some extent transform from traditional to social. In addition to providing insight into the possibilities of social entrepreneurship and social enterprise concept and their challenges, the aim of this paper is to identify and analyze the potential opportunities for social entrepreneurs that may arise in the new, stimulating framework, which was first defined in the Draft Strategy for the Development of social entrepreneurship in the Republic of Croatia for the period from 2014 to 2020. This strategic document is mainly concentrated on the development of financial instruments supporting social entrepreneurs, and educational and promotional activities for social entrepreneurial activity. As more public space has recently created a greater interest in social entrepreneurship, new good practice examples will be analyzed in the paper as well. Finally, the conclusion about the stage of social entrepreneurship development in Croatia and guidelines for its future development will be proposed.
