Social entrepreneurs are people who apply the techniques of business and innovation to solve social problems.
Social innovation is what they do, and social enterprises are what they create.
Social enterprises may be new, stand-alone, economically sustainable organizations, or they may involve change and innovation within existing structures.
People skilled at leading change from within are social intrapreneurs.
Social infrapreneurs are the ones creating the ecosystem for social enterprises to thrive.
