Social innovation has been practiced for decades, however relatively little is known. According to Mulgan (2006), Social innovation refers to the innovative activities motivated by a social need and objective, predominantly diffused through organisations whose primary purposes are social. Social enterprises are entrepreneurial organisations existing for two purposes; social and economic value creation. In a constantly changing environment social enterprises need to utilise dynamic capabilities in their pursuit of social innovation in order to meet the ‘double bottom line’. This paper presents a comprehensive review of literature surrounding social innovation, social entrepreneurship and the role of social enterprises, and the findings of a pilot study of social innovation in social enterprises, which sought to determine the extent to which social enterprises in the UK practice social innovation.
