Research Handbook on Small Business Social Responsibility

Global Perspectives

Edited by Laura J. Spence, Jedrzej G. Frynas, Judy N. Muthuri and Jyoti Navare

The vast majority of businesses globally are small. If business is to be socially responsible, we need to go beyond the westernised concept of 'Corporate Social Responsibility', to develop 'Small Business Social Responsibility'. This agenda-setting Research Handbook on Small Business Social Responsibility includes leading research from around the world, including developed and developing country contexts. It provides a foundation for the further development of small business social responsibility as a scholarly subject and crucially important practice and policy field.

Chapter 19: Case study: incubation and relevance of social businesses in rural Nepal. A case study of a social business incubator in Jumla

Ingeborg Patsch


Social businesses are unlikely to emerge without a supportive infrastructure. Nepal Social Business is the first social business incubator to enter the remote district of Jumla in Nepal. Four different social business start-ups were selected for incubation between April 2014 and December 2015. Three of these projects dealt directly or indirectly with malnutrition, which is among the pressing issues of this area. Incubation, when working in regions with a lack of basic infrastructure and entrepreneurs with no formal economic education or relevant business acumen, requires a high degree of personal involvement and relatively more resources, than when working with start-ups in a more developed setting.
