Abstract
As a new form of entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship aims at solving social problems, takes the establishment of social enterprises or non-profit organizations as the main form, and has attracted wide attention and discussion among practitioners, policy makers and scholars. By constructing a theoretical model of social capital and social entrepreneurial intention, this study explores the relationship between social capital and social entrepreneurial intention of Chinese social entrepreneurs or entrepreneurs who are willing to engage in social entrepreneurship. The results showed that social capital has a positive influence on entrepreneurial bricolage and social entrepreneurial intention, entrepreneurial bricolage has a positive influence on social entrepreneurial intention, and entrepreneurial bricolage plays a part of intermediary role between social capital and social entrepreneurial intention. This research will be helpful for social entrepreneurs to recognize their own social capital, effectively obtain resources through social capital and make up the value of resources through entrepreneurship, thus it can stimulate the social entrepreneurial intentions of social entrepreneurs.
