Outstanding social entrepreneurs inspire students, transform communities, and ignite innovative approaches to solving social needs-and although social enterprises remain small, their impact is growing globally. This timely second edition of Social Entrepreneurship has been inspired by the increasing interest both in social entrepreneurship scholarship and in entrepreneurs' power to deliver novel solutions to social issues as they endeavor to respond to increasingly complex social problems and demands for welfare at a time of government cutbacks. Additional chapters and international case studies explore new developments in the health and social care landscape, such as the rise of the social investment market, the use of design thinking, and the increasing importance of social impact measurement. An accessibly written, in-depth introduction which clearly links theory to practice in stakeholder engagement, financial options, leadership management, and organizational challenges, this book will be essential reading for students, scholars, practitioners, and entrepreneurs eager to expand their knowledge, skills, and passion and bring about real, sustainable social change.
