Social Entrepreneurship

ENT 4402

Social Entrepreneurship, at its core, is an attempt to mobilize the resources of the community, business, and government to address socially important issues and problems. It is an effort to generate new ways of functioning as a society and as individuals, new business models, but also ways of improving the current models in order to reflect society's growing and increasingly complex demands. As a discipline, it combines topics as diverse as philosophy, political science, entrepreneurship, innovation, organizational behavior, ethics, corporate social responsibility, and quite a few others. Social entrepreneurship, in other words, is an effort to reconcile the goals of the organization (regardless of size and industry) with the requirements of today's society. At a personal level, it means studying how to become better citizen.
