the traditional definition of an entrepreneur is a person who organizes and accepts the risks of a new business. entrepreneurs may have a new product or service to offer. or they may have ideas for new ways to do business.

but social entrepreneurs say they are not guided by a desire for profits. their most important goal, they say, is to create social value. they organize and support programs that aim to improve conditions in communities.
