Social Entrepreneurs

A social entrepreneur is a person who desires to solve, or alleviate, one or more social problems by founding (or co-founding) a for-profit organization, or a non-profit organization that combines business systems and methods with innovative ideas and strategies that result in measurable positive social change, either locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.


 Thus, the social entrepreneur begins with: 1) PASSION: a passion-filled dream that identifies the specific social problem or problems that he or she wants to reduce or eliminate, 2) VISION: a compelling vision of the change he or she wants to see in the world, and 3) A STORY: a story of the impact that he or she wants to make in the lives of others, 4) LEADERSHIP: basic leadership skills that are required to engage managers who operate the systems and processes that convert the vision into impact.
