This chapter identifies the common ground shared by social and community entrepreneurship and distils four distinctive characteristics of community entrepreneurship in terms of people, place, participation and governance. Community perspectives on social enterprise mission and business models are considered and a theory-rich community entrepreneurship research agenda is developed for social networks, social capital, innovation, and impact and sustainability.
