What is Social Entrepreneurship?
Social entrepreneurship is a different kind of business. It blends the brains of a startup with the heart of a charity to create a perfect blend of income and impact.
Social entrepreneurs are society's change agents and creators of innovations that disrupt the status quo and transform our world.
Because Money is never enough
Social entrepreneurs recognize that money alone is never a good reason to do anything. Money is simply a means to an end.
We were designed for purpose, meaning, and impact. So social entrepreneurs focus on Purpose Maximization, as much as Profit Maximization.
The best performing people, organizations, and companies stand for something bigger than their products or profits, and contribute positively to the world's more important issues.
Live for something bigger than you...
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone.
