Social entrepreneurship can be broadly defined as running a profitable business with a deep social commitment. Indeed, the production and marketization of a given product or service is done while respecting the needs of the local community and wider society as for instance environmental consciousness, gender equality and minority inclusion.

Furthermore, those profits generated by the enterprise are not accumulated but rather re-invested to achieve socially enhancing objectives.
