The job of a social entrepreneur is to recognize when a part of
society is stuck and to provide new ways to get it unstuck. He or she finds what is not working and solves the problem by
changing the system, spreading the solution and persuading entire societies to take new leaps. Social entrepreneurs are not
content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry....
The scholar comes to rest when he expresses an idea. The professional succeeds when she solves a clientęs problem. The manager
calls it quits when he has enabled his organization to succeed. Social entrepreneurs go beyond the immediate problem to fundamentally
change communities, societies, the world. (from ashoka.org)
