What form does entrepreneurship take when companies aim for social value creation? This documentary illustrates how the Hungarian company Prezi engages in the Roma community in the village Bag, one hour from Budapest. Based on an ethnographic method, the documentary is produced by entrepreneurship researchers at Uppsala University and Stockholm University. The purpose of the documentary is to evoke questions about alternative forms of entrepreneurship that currently are becoming increasingly popular. The film problematizes the activities under taken by the company by attending to various voices displayed during the renovation of private homes of the Roma in Bag.
