Nowadays, Social Entrepreneurship is considered as a growth driver for emerging countries. This phenomenon that combines economic utility and social efficiency has recently attracted considerable interest in the academic world as well as among public institutions. In Morocco, it is during the last decade that we witnessed an infatuation towards this new type of entrepreneurship. Several actors are working today to promote the sector, however, there is a lack of research on their role in developing the ecosystem of the Moroccan social enterprise. Based on a qualitative study, this article aims to map the stakeholders of social entrepreneurship, their missions and their role in creating a favorable environment for the emergence of social entrepreneurs. The results will be presented as an exploratory basis.

Keywords: Social entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial ecosystem, environment, stakeholders.
