    by Kwame Adom, Abdallah Abdul-Rahaman, Francisca Duah- Agyemang 
    Abstract: The study examined social entrepreneurship (SE) activities, SE environmental factors and the nexus of SE environment and SE. Scarce SE literature in Ghana necessitated this study. Thus, its critical to understand what brings about and influences SE in Ghana. A qualitative research methodology was adopted for the study. Accordingly, a multiple case study approach is employed to establish the empirical patterns and linkages among the variables of interest of the study. Qualitative in-depth interviews of four social entrepreneurs in Ghana involved in the arts industry, clean energy, human development and manufacturing revealed: corruption and bureaucracy, regulatory framework, tax and tariff regime, infrastructure, illiteracy, exchange rate, wealth distribution, and technological innovations as critical factors that affect SE operations. Consequently, this calls for prudent policies to ameliorate the impact of these factors for a sustainable human development.
