Abstract

This paper uses emerging findings from an ongoing study of contemporary entrepreneurial philanthropy. It considers the historical and theoretical antecedents of such philanthropy and its current practice. The paper seeks to develop theoretical understanding of contemporary entrepreneurial philanthropy by considering the relevance of Capital and Agency theories. The paper contributes empirically by presenting a discussion of the capital possessed by 100 UK entrepreneurs involved in philanthropy and considering the implications of these for their engagement in philanthropy. The paper contributes to current discourse regarding the nature of entrepreneurship while developing understanding of contemporary entrepreneurial philanthropists.
