Entrepreneurship help build communities in many ways including providing jobs, conducting business locally, creating and participating in entrepreneurial networks, investing in community projects, and giving to local charities. Entrepreneurs have the ability to amass the necessary resources to capitalize on new business opportunities. They build something from practically nothing and usually reinvest their earnings to expand their enterprise or create new enterprises.
A social entrepreneur identifies and solves social problems on a large scale. Just as business entrepreneurs create and transform whole industries, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss in order to improve systems, invent and disseminate new approaches and advance sustainable solutions that create social value.
“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.” Bill Drayton, CEO, chair and founder of Ashoka
