Social enterprise plays an important role in the globalised economy. Since the global financial crisis of 2008, the Indian and UK governments have seen social enterprise as a catalyst for providing positive economic growth in the global economy; both governments perceive social enterprise as a new way of providing long-term economic stability in terms of innovation and jobs growth. Furthermore, over the last ten years, social enterprise has become a forefront concept with significant influence within the higher education sector.

The aim of this presentation is to provide a critical understanding of social enterprise at governmental, higher education and community levels within the geographical examples of India and the UK. The author will present qualitative findings from a social enterprise UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) funded project. A series of focus group meetings and semi structured interviews were undertaken in the summer of 2018, to discuss the benefits of social enterprise at a community level. In this presentation, the author will construct a social enterprise model that intends to benefit academics, students in higher education, policy makers and social entrepreneurs.
