- Module 1: Introduction
Enthusiasm for social changes is universal. However, it takes knowledge, practice and experience to be an exceptional social entrepreneur. This course presents examples of social entrepreneurship to confront problems (from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors). In this course we have used several examples from traditional entrepreneurs, social change agents, and advocates to break down social entrepreneurship basics for the comprehension of a dynamic audience. Entrepreneurship is famous for its pursuit of profit by employing the best human and material resources to set and attain goals. Social entrepreneurship is the aggregation of initiatives that combine the instrumentalities of modern business and social impacts (easing some of the vicissitudes of life and making the world a better place). It is the deliberate exploration of business tactics in creating solutions to societal challenges. It involves using traditional business practices to create sustainable value with specific social benefits. Lets dig in!
