“Social entrepreneurship is a form of entrepreneurship that integrates social goals and social problem solving into the core business model. The business model of social entrepreneurial ventures (or social ventures) simultaneously creates economic and social value. Social entrepreneurship is different than traditional entrepreneurship. It is different than the traditional non-profit approach to addressing social problems in our communities. Social entrepreneurship (SE) uses market-oriented approaches to address social problems and environmental challenges.”
