Abstract: Social enterprises are increasingly being hailed as a mechanism to provide basic welfare services to underserved populations in developing countries. However, this growth also raises questions of paternalism and dependency, previously examined in the context of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). This study examines the extent to which access to funding differs for developing country social enterprises, based on the backgrounds of their founders. We find that social enterprises with expatriate founding teams are more likely to receive grant funding, compared to those founded by locals, which is consistent with similar research on NGOs.
