What Is Social Entrepreneurship?

Social entrepreneurship blends of the brains of a business with the heart of a non-profit, to create profitable, sustainable models for positive social change.


You no longer have to choose between pursuing your passion, getting a paycheck, and serving a purpose bigger than yourself. These creative business models allow you to harness your talents to both generate income and serve the causes or communities you care about.

"We're in business to create a better tomorrow. If we live for one another, together we can change the world."

Do Well By Doing Good

Today, more than ever, people care about what companies are doing. And the companies who are good and do good, are the ones who stand out.

Social Entrepreneurship creates a new business model that generates both purpose and profit, without sacrificing one for the other. Because that is the secret to sustainable solutions.




The "Both...And" Economy

The old business models are based in the "either...or", scarcity-based, competitive mindset. Either passion or profit; either stability or spontaneity; either freedom or finance.


But today a new economy is emerging. Today, companies can achieve both purpose and profit. Today, you can create both freedom and finances; both flexibility and security; significance and success; income and impact.

Becoming a Changemaker

You no longer have to choose between pursuing your interests, making an income and creating an impact. You can, quite literally, have it all. 

"If you organize your life around your passion, you can turn your passion into your story and then turn your story into something bigger - something that matters." -Blake Mycoskie

Which Problems Are You Passionate About Solving?

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Products can be used to serve the causes and transform the communities you care about. 

Business That Solves Big Problems

We create shared values when we solve a social problem with business models. 

Profit's Not Always The Point

It's not about a bar of soap. It's about using the process and the product to create change.
