This thesis digs into an investigation of Ecuador's entrepreneurial ecosystem, with a focus on social enterprises. Its major goal is to not only investigate but also catalyze the development of this ecosystem, with the overriding goal of empowering and giving full assistance to social entrepreneurs as they attempt to make a long-term and meaningful impact. Recognizing the relevance of entrepreneurial ecosystems in driving economic growth and encouraging innovation, this study builds on a framework influenced by Stam and Spigel's incisive works, carefully putting it into the context of social entrepreneurship in Ecuador. Using this approach, the thesis aims to shed light on the complexities of the ecosystem and open up new options for growth and collaboration. Additionally, the thesis accomplishes this through a multifaceted strategy that combines a thorough literature review, interviews with important stakeholders, and a proper analysis of all concepts.
