Social entrepreneurship (SE) is a new business model that is a hybrid between non-profit organizations and classic business. The activity of such entrepreneurs is aimed at solving socio-economic and environmental problems. And the main difference between a joint venture and a regular business is that their first priority is social mission or value, and profits can be partly directed to social goals.
