Social entrepreneurship is defined by doing business for a social purpose. Social entrepreneurs combine social and economic actions in a way that improves the lives of people connected to the cause. They don’t measure their success in terms of profit alone or dominantly. They measure their economic performance just on a slightly positive breakeven. Whereas, success to social entrepreneurs is measured outside the social start-up whether they have improved the world and have had a positive impact on society based on the common good.
