After looking at that example, social entrepreneurship has many meanings to me. It means that that someone is following their passion and dedicating all their efforts to make others fall in love with their passion as well. It means that you want to create your own innovative path to accomplish a goal. Social entrepreneurship also incorporates a way to give back to the community. Examples of social entrepreneurship that I have witnessed, including the example above, have shown how these businesses are always finding new ways to serve others and make their environment a better place. There is always a way of involving others and creating building blocks to make the enterprise grow. It is important in this world that we live in because every day things are constantly changing.
“Sometimes people ask me why am I so excited about what I do. My reply mostly is, "You see one celebrity and get excited. I see several hundred thousand future celebrities, change makers, and world movers, every day.”
― Sharad Vivek Sagar
Working within TechTown every day shows me how accurate this quote is pertaining to social entrepreneurship. The idea to be financially successful is not the only goal. There is a larger goal which is creating an impact within the world as “change makers” or “world movers”.
“I hope to break even while helping as many people as I can and truly making an impact”.
This statement was made by someone on stage when they asked what he truly hopes to happen with his business within the next year. The world needs social entrepreneurs who can produce new ideas that can help keep up with the changing pace of society. Also, the world needs sustainability and innovation and social entrepreneurship can offer these two things in the long run.
