What is a Social Enterprise?
A social enterprise is created in response to a significant social problem. The beginnings of organization are typically led by one or two people who have experienced the significant social problem at a highly disturbing level. The social enterprise is then founded to serve multiple stakeholders: individuals and communities most affected by the significant social problem, the natural environment upon which everyone depends, and the economic needs of the social enterprise (meeting operational costs and reinvesting in the growth of social services). The social operational model in practice often benefits the economic health of community mission partners as well.
