Social Entrepreneurs

Social Entrepreneurs Social entrepreneurship is the application of the mindset, processes, tools and techniques of business entrepreneurship to social problems. "Social entrepreneurship involves the application of business practices to the pursuit of social and/or environmental mission.

It brings the mindset, principles, strategies, tools and techniques of entrepreneurship to the social sector, yielding innovative solutions to the vexing problems facing society – poverty, hunger, inadequate housing and homelessness, unemployment and under-employment, illiteracy, disease, environmental degradation, etc. It finds solutions where government and private sector efforts have not."

General information

Key findings: *Social innovation has moved centre stage over the last decade, as existing structures and policies have found it impossible to crack some of the most pressing issues of our times. *Social innovation is distinct from other forms of innovation. As a result, it often requires its own processes, metrics, models and methods. *The methods for social innovation should be a common property, and should evolve through shared learning. Chances of it being successful will increase if we can share our experiences and quickly reflect on what works and what doesn’t.
