The Rise of Social Entrepreneurship


When you look around yourself, do you see problems? Do you see issues crying for attention? If you are a little conscious about your environment, your surroundings, the people you meet regularly and the places you visit routinely, you will notice a lot of things that are not how they should/could be. That’s where you can prove yourself.

Andrew Carnegie used to say that every adversity opens doors to loads of opportunities. Every problem is thus an “opportunity in disguise” – precisely what the concept of Social Entrepreneurship is all about.

It is simply about picking up a problem in your surrounding that could be improved and then moving a step ahead with actually improving the situation by solving part of the problem. You would notice there is so much that could be done that you’d have to hire people to start doing things pretty soon.
