The Rise And Rise Of The Social Entrepreneur.

No Comment 44 Views

As we move to a “stakeholder” view of our world, businesses are being driven to become social capitalists, thinking beyond the function they provide to claim a bigger, more culturally relevant purpose, giving all those who interact a greater sense of belonging, mission and loyalty. While there’s much focus on corporate responsibility, (and historically brilliant business entrepreneurs), more and more individuals are becoming social entrepreneurs; bringing indomitable will and vision to tackling (and solving) major societal issues to affect huge change.

“Just as entrepreneurs change the face of business, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss to improve systems, invent new approaches, and create solutions to change society for the better. While a business entrepreneur might create entirely new industries, a social entrepreneur develops innovative solutions to social problems and then implements them on a large scale.”Ashoka
