Zusammenfassung

Eine der zentralen Herausforderungen für Social Enterprises ist die Finanzierung des Wachstums und der Ausweitung ihrer sozialen Wirkung, da konventionelle Finanzquellen des sozialen Sektors oft nur eingeschränkt verfügbar und an einzelne Projekte gebunden sind. So gestalten sich Investitionen in allgemeine Betriebskosten („overheads“) oder die Entwicklung neuer Produkte und Dienstleistungen meist sehr schwer. Als mögliche Lösung haben unter dem Label Social Impact Investing jüngst Ansätze aus dem Venture Capital verstärkt Aufmerksamkeit erfahren. Im vorliegenden Beitrag wird eine systematische empirische Darstellung der größten Herausforderungen für Social Impact Investing in Deutschland vorgelegt. Wir erläutern sowohl die Perspektiven von Intermediären wie auch Beteiligungsunternehmen unter Berücksichtigung der spezifischen Bedingungen für Social Enterprises in Deutschland. Abschließend diskutieren wir einige Schlussfolgerungen für Praktiker und die Politik sowie für die weitere Forschung.
