Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry.
Social entrepreneurship is at the heart of debates about social change and tackling global social problems. As social consciousness grows, so has the need for organizations that have purpose and ethical business practices built into their foundations. There is also increasing impetus to integrate social purpose into corporate strategy to maintain a competitive advantage and for long-term survival. Social entrepreneurs are gaining international attention motivated by the desire for change and to see the world as it can be, not as it is.
