Resumo: This study explores an innovative and integrated approach to solve the unemployment problem in Portugal through a social responsible behavior based-strategy. Human, intellectual and financial resources are presented as tools to efficiently engage such citizens in entrepreneurial activities in order to increase labor market productivity and promote the country’s economic growth (Bosma , Stam , & Schutjens, Creative Destruction and Regional Competitiveness, 2006). After a careful literature review and analysis of the insights collected from the thorough research on unemployment and entrepreneurship, specifically regarding human and financing capital, a framework based on the social service innovation concept is presented. The proposed set of solutions to reduce unemployment in Portugal were obtained by conducting a survey targeting unemployed Portuguese citizens, addressing their needs and expectations regarding training programs, and a status quo analysis of crowdfunding, together with the (historical) statistical results concerning the Portuguese labor market and its impact in the entrepreneurial sector. The dissertation findings are expected to be a useful contribution to the entrepreneurship literature, shedding some light into the main dimensions to be analyzed when defining an implementation strategy through a social responsible behavior, based on training and financing possibilities, and proposing a set of relevant guidelines to design operations in order to achieve its major goal.
