Social entrepreneurs directly impact the lives of millions of people across the world. They are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing environmental, social and cultural affairs and international relations. They are ambitious and passionate leaders of change. According to Bill Drayton Founder of Ashoka, “Social entrepreneurs are the essential corrective force. They are system-changing entrepreneurs. And from deep within they, and therefore their work, are committed to the good of all.”
