Defining the Social Entrepreneur

A social entrepreneur identifies and solves social problems on a large scale. Just as business entrepreneurs create and transform whole industries, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss in order to improve systems, invent and disseminate new approaches and advance sustainable solutions that create social value.

Unlike traditional business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs primarily seek to generate "social value" rather than profits. And unlike the majority of non-profit organizations, their work is targeted not only towards immediate, small-scale effects, but sweeping, long-term change.

Social Entrepreneurship are businesses starting by entrepreneurs who choose an entrepreneurial venture based upon the social purpose or social good that business creates. Social entrepreneurship is purpose-driven entrepreneurship.
