Abstract: This dissertation seeks to contribute to the framework of open innovation strategy applied to social enterprises. Although developed markets are characterised by the innovation of many of their industries, this not a distinguishing characteristic of many of Latin American economies. Moreover, open innovation and social innovation are subject areas that have been studied in developed countries but under-researched in emerging markets. This study applies an abductive approach, combining the empirical findings of the cases with the phenomenon that is described in the existing literature by connecting them to open social innovation and collaborative projects. Furthermore, the findings allow to derive new themes in the current framework of open social innovation and collaborative projects. The combination of the strategies suggest that social enterprises can generate profit while providing a social good and engaging people in projects where innovation meets a collaborative action for societal change.
