Research on prosocial entrepreneurship so far has focused either on ex-ante motives to create prosocial enterprises or on ex-post strategies to protect mission orientation. Surprisingly little is known about the prosocial entrepreneurial competences that help acquire resources to create blended value once a venture has been established. To fill this gap, we conduct a qualitative study in an Indian setting from which we determine that prosocial entrepreneurs adopt three types of competence encompassing seven dimensions to assemble resources when they establish their ventures. This study makes three contributions into prosocial entrepreneurship literature.
