    A new challenge for public-private partnerships lies in gaining temporary advantage through social innovation, in order to operate within dynamic environments. This research explores social innovation enabled by technology, in order to build an empirical model that can be useful in addressing social needs of the citizens, while increasing temporary advantages for the companies. This research presents an entrepreneurial approach in which public-private partnerships can organise technology in order to develop and diffuse social innovation within dynamic environments. By employing this model, citizens can be empowered to participate in the joint construction of social innovation enabled by information and communication technology, in particular the phenomenon of shared data. The social entrepreneurship approach enables public-private partnerships to leverage shared data and obtain temporary advantages. This aids in developing innovative solutions to improve quality of life of citizens while it enables companies to succeed in dynamic environments.
