What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Hey all!
Some of you might be wondering…

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP?!

Well, fear not! For I’m here to break down these two not really bombastic words for you 😀
According to the dictionary, Social entrepreneurship is the work of a social entrepreneur. (the definition’s kinda LOL-ish don’t you think?)

And what on earth is a social entrepreneur?
A social entrepreneur is someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change.

 

 In my opinion, Social Entrepreneurship is like a life saviour. Why do I say so?
Well, to put it simply, because it changes the lives of the society for the better. It forges a new, stable equilibrium that alleviates the suffering of the targeted group, and through imitation and the creation of a stable ecosystem around the new equilibrium, it ensures a better future for the targeted group and even society at large. Take the Haiti earthquake  for example. (please don’t go: aww, not again!) So many people, of different ages, from different countries, come together to help the Haiti victims. And that, to me, is considered as a blessing because not only does this bonds the people, it also aids the victims of the Haiti earthquake as well. Therefore, Social entrepreneurship is exactly like a life saviour.

So, after reading this post, tell me about what you think Social Entrepreneurship really is. (:
