The purpose of this paper was to visualize and describe a general social/societal entrepreneurship process and to describe essential parts within the processes with the aim of contributing to the understanding of the features of the phenomenon. By studying the area from a Quality Management view and with a focus on processes this study shows a proposed visualization of the soci(et)al entrepreneurship development processes. The visualization shows processes, activities, output, input, and the value to the customer within soci(et)al entrepreneurship. The process starts with various unidentified needs and ends in the soci(et)al values. The study focused on literature that was found through databases, previous knowledge within the area and from other scientists. The results were confirmed in literature that describes social or societal entrepreneurship cases. This is an attempt to contribute to the understanding of soci(et)al entrepreneurship and help practitioners to understand their work and develop within the field.
