What is a Social Entrepreneur?

I was recently asked to define “Socail Entrepreneur.” This is a term that is often miss-understood, or given a strange glance when mentioned to outsiders. The following is my definition of the practice.

A social entrepreneur is a designer of business whose intentions are not in capital gain, but instead in the advancement of the greater good of society. A social enterprise is one that thinks and operates as a non-profit organization would, but has interesting design in it’s planning so as to be able to sustain itself and actually create a profit as opposed to relying on government funding and funding from donors.
