dc.description.abstract The development of the third sector in Australia has involved the negotiation of varying forms of state and market regulatory mechanisms. In the course of these settlements, ground-up initiatives have often found that authenticity is only the starting point on journeys that end in incorporation. Social entrepreneurship is an emerging set of ideas which attempts to hold on to the authentic and unique elements generated by grassroots actions. What are its chances of success'? This article sets out to answer this question through a discussion of regulation and social capital. A four-fold model of social capital formation is advanced which outlines 'defensive', 'consolidative ', 'inclusive' and 'regulated' social capital. It is concluded that while social entrepreneurship has the potential to shift social capital formation from reactive to active forms, it is likely to become increasingly standardised and regulated. Can you turn a Coca-Cola vending machine into an information point/or communities? And by the way. can we have 12 per cent of everything that is sold? That is about thinking outside the box, (Mawson 2001: 164) For the social entrepreneurs, real power came from giving power away. (Latham 2001: 125). en_US
