Social innovation and social entrepreneurship look for creative and affordable solutions to specific societal problems. Fuelled by the spread of the internet and the ubiquity of mobile phones, there are more people working to solve pressing social and environmental problems in the world today than ever before in human history. Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation presents the journeys of pioneering - and often accidental - social innovators who, faced with a problem, used their courage, tenacity and creative thinking to find a solution. Using their own words to reflect open their experiences, these cases do not gloss over the setbacks and the dead ends social entrepreneurs can face. Instead, readers will gain a realistic insight into the challenges and an engaging look at the problem-solving mindset needed to overcome them. From a life-saving project to bring solar-powered lighting to midwives in Nigeria, to a news dissemination service that's grown from small beginnings to have a global impact, each case study draws out the lessons learnt by the innovators, providing guidance and advice for those looking to follow in their footsteps. Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation is an invaluable resource for social entrepreneurs and innovators looking for new ideas and insight into what really works - and what doesn't. This book is an inspiring read for anyone with a social conscience and a desire to change their world for the better.

Over the past few decades, the nonprofit and for-profit sectors have become more alike, undertaking mixed commercial and social programming in response to dramatic changes in the cultural and economic context. This new landscape includes constantly evolving demographics; instant and interactive technology; downsized and devolved governments; a global marketplace; a volatile economy; and a commercial presence that reaches into almost every aspect of life. Faced with these challenges, nonprofit organizations are becoming more market-oriented while businesses are working harder to benefit communities as well as stockholders. Scholars and practitioners in diverse fields are observing the convergence of market and mission throughout the world and are anxiously trying to find a common language to describe this burgeoning area of activity so that it can be better understood and harnessed. [This] volume sheds light on the most promising new approaches to researching social entrepreneurship, from both academics and practitioners, and covers the following topics: developing an evidence-based definition of and theoretical framework for social entrepreneurship research; the extent of institutionalization of the social enterprise field; methods for assessing the impact of social entrepreneurs' work; a comparison of social entrepreneurship in the United States and abroad; and a case study on a specific social enterprise. The volume concludes with recommendations for several promising areas of social entrepreneurship research, including new legal forms for hybrid organizations, capitalization of enterprise activity, the state of education for the next generation of social entrepreneurs, and international comparisons of social enterprise models.
