Building your business while helping the community has become the ‘in’ thing. There are many different perspectives and therefore various definitions for Social Entrepreneurship. While there are those companies that have a local focus there are others that have a national or/and international focus. Colorado has some of the top programs and support groups in the country.

Wikipedia states this: Social entrepreneurship is the work of social entrepreneurs. A social entrepreneur recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create and manage a venture to achieve social change (a social venture). While a business entrepreneur typically measures performance in profit and return, a social entrepreneur focuses on creating social capital. Thus, the main aim of social entrepreneurship is to further social and environmental goals. Social entrepreneurs are most commonly associated with the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors , but this need not preclude making a profit. Social entrepreneurship practiced with a world view or international context is called international social entrepreneurship.
