What are the differences?

What are the similarities?


Social entrepreneurs play the role of change agents in the social sector, by:

  • Adopting a mission to create and sustain social value (not just private value),
  • Recognizing and relentlessly pursuing new opportunities to serve that mission,
  • Engaging in a process of continuous innovation, adaptation, and learning,
  • Acting boldly without being limited by resources currently in hand, and
  • Exhibiting heightened accountability to the constituencies served and for the outcomes created.

(Lees, 1998; p 4)

think again

“Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking, reasoning, and acting that is opportunity obsessed, holistic in approach, and leadership balanced.”

(Timmons, 1999; p 27)

Motivation aside, is there really a difference?

“Social entrepreneurs are one species in the genus entrepreneur” (Dees, 2001; p 2)

Think again?
