The field of social entrepreneurship (SE) is reaching maturity (Sassmannshausen and Volkmann 2018). However, there remain numerous new directions and paths less travelled for exploring the varied and complex SE terrain. This book draws together sixteen chapter contributions from developing paths of the SE field, to sign- post directions ahead. In this chapter we integrate and build on these rich insights, paving the way for a future research agenda to advance the maturing SE field.
