The paper explores how practitioners and policymakers work together to shape and form a new organizational field; venture philanthropy in Europe. Using data from the European Venture Philanthropy, we aim to understand how the interplay between the actors who shape the rules of an emerging field unfolds, and how such interplay may contribute to field construction. Importantly, we note that to begin to address grand challenges, the actions and innovations of individual entrepreneurs need to be complemented by policy reform that can change entire systems. Therefore, our study aims to contribute tools to facilitate successful interplay that can lead to institutional change.
