Along with fidget spinners, calling yourself a social entrepreneur is 2017’s hottest trend. An entrepreneur is often defined as someone who comes up with a new idea, method or business to address a problem in their community. A social entrepreneur is similar to a business entrepreneur, relying on innovation and creativity to provide a solution to a problem, but they are driven by a mission to create social impact and tackle issues such as alleviating hunger, improving education, and combatting climate change.
“The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.”
― Benjamin Disraeli
Today, as the world struggles with problems including poverty, climate change, health and more, social entrepreneurship is rising in popularity and gaining more traction in being able to create real changes for our communities.
