3 Top Reasons Why Social Entrepreneurs Fail


#1. Lack of Skills

Business Development, Product Development, Marketing, Presentation, Pitching for Fundraising… those are the essential skillsets that can cause entrepreneurs from achieving their goals. Without them, it’s like hacking away at a tree with a blunt axe.

#2. Lack of Leadership Experience

Social entrepreneurs who work alone usually don’t get far; they need a team. Problem arise when they do not know how to lead the teams effectively, leverage on each of their individual strengths, and casting visions that unite towards the cause.

#3. Lack of Domain Experience

Passion is a great fuel to initiate a movement, but when the tyres hit the road, challenges will pop up, and the social entrepreneur who fails to navigate the in and outs, curves and slopes will not last long. There where intricate knowledge of the market segment, demographics and industry players comes in handy.
