What Is Social Entrepreneurship?
You may not be familiar with the phrase social entrepreneurship, but it’s quietly becoming the most powerful business model of the 21st century. It’s an exciting new strategy that tackles global issues like poverty, malnutrition, clean air and water, and health care.
The world today is plagued by probably more problems than ever before in history. We face challenges like never before and the “to do” list is enormous and growing. Social entrepreneurship is a relatively new phenomenon that operates in areas where traditional non-profit and government‐based support structures have not been successful.
History Of Social Entrepreneurs
Although Social Entrepreneur and Social Entrepreneurship are relatively new terms, examples can be found throughout history. They have always existed but in the past they were called visionaries, humanitarians, missionaries, philanthropist, reformers, saints or simply great leaders. Attention was paid to their courage, compassion and great vision but rarely to the practical aspects of their accomplishments. Children learn that Florence Nightingale cared for wounded soldiers but not that she built the first professional school for nurses and revolutionised the hospital system.
Social Entrepreneurship Will Change The World
Just as entrepreneurs change the face of business, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss and improving systems, inventing new approaches, and creating solutions to change society for the better. While a business entrepreneur might create entirely new industries, a social entrepreneur comes up with new solutions to social problems and then implements them.
In fact, this new initiative has the world’s leading policy makers predicting that it will not only become the most purposeful, profitable platform of our time, but also a revolutionary change in thinking and planning for sustainable global improvement.
