What is social entrepreneurship? Social entrepreneurs are people who solve the world’s most pressing problems by using business as a force for good. This term, coined in 2005, encompasses anyone who believes that businesses have an important role to play in solving social and environmental issues.
The best way to get started with this type of work is with a cause you care about; find out what needs can be met through your skills and interests.
Once you’ve determined which issue you want to tackle, take steps towards making it happen – whether that means starting your own company or volunteering on the side.
Entrepreneurship has been shown to make us happier than any other occupation due to its intrinsic rewards: personal fulfillment from doing something meaningful and contributing positively toward society at large.
