Research on this topic should explore how sustainable entrepreneurs embed digital technologies in their business models to leverage social and environmental value creation. Sustainable entrepreneurs are considered to be key actors as they advance efforts of sustainable development through the implementation of financially viable and innovative business models that create positive social and environmental impact. Creating environmental and social value can stand in harsh contrast with the logic of the commercial market that prioritizes financial gain, and causes worries for the entrepreneurs. This research should ideally focus on the aspects related to social entrepreneurship using digital business models. The aspects could include developing market dynamics, dynamics of competitive forces, and organizational characteristics that could impact the digital business models employed for the cause of social entrepreneurship.
