Abstract: The purpose of the study is to enhance our understanding about the influence of conscientiousness on social vision in Indian settings along with testing the moderating effect of family influence. The survey was conducted by sending online invitations to participate in the survey to respondents who lived in India. 250 people participated in the study, out of which 201 questionnaires were used for data analysis. Hierarchical multiple regression was conducted using the process developed by Andrew F. Hayes to test the hypotheses. The findings of the present study suggest that conscientiousness is a strong predictor of social vision in Indian settings. This study, further adds to the literature that family influence moderates the relationship between conscientiousness and social vision. Theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.

Keywords: social entrepreneurship; conscientiousness; family influence; social vision.
