A social enterprise is one that employs business practices to meet a social need. This could include bringing technologies to remote regions of the world, reducing waste while helping people in need or employing a vulnerable population. Social enterprises are increasingly developing innovations which are creating new ways to address social concerns. Social enterprises include mission-first businesses, benefit corporations (B-Corps), nonprofits with earned revenue and socially responsible businesses. They can be for-profit, non-profit or hybrid in legal structure.
