What is a Social Entrepreneur?
Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation and transformation in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development.

They pursue poverty alleviation goals with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and overcome traditional practices.

A social entrepreneur, similar to a business entrepreneur, builds strong and sustainable organisations, which are either set up as not-for-profits or companies.
