Bringing value to life
Social entrepreneurship is entrepreneurship with a social mission
Social Enterprise NL states: ‘Social entrepreneurs look for innovative solutions to societal challenges. A social enterprise delivers just like any other company product or service and a business model. Making money is not the main goal, it is a means to accomplish the mission. The purpose of social enterprise is to create social value, also known as 'impact'.
Social enterprises are located between charities and commercial companies and form a new sector.
Social Enterprise UK uses the (European) definition: a social enterprise:
This definition fits our way of working. Moreover, our name refers to triple impact, i.e. with respect to People, Planet and Prosperity. Happiness should in fact be included as the envisioned change should be light hearted, but than our name would have became to difficult to pronounce.
