Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Social innovation looks to new ways, from strategies and concepts to processes and organisations, of attempting to address the needs of society. Social entrepreneurship has emerged in the last few decades as one response to addressing social issues, whereby individuals, groups, organisations or networks seek sustainable, large-scale social impact through innovative ideas that challenge the prevailing wisdom. Social entrepreneurship takes a blended values approach, that of delivering social change using concepts and principles from the business public or third sectors. Any profit earned through social entrepreneurship is reinvested back into society. Social entrepreneurship takes into account the “double” or sometimes even “triple” bottom line, not just individual gain but also social and ecological good.
