"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it."
Social entrepreneurs play the role of change agents in the social sector,they adopt a mission to create and sustain social value.
They relentlessly pursue opportunities to serve this mission, while continuously adapting and learning.
Social entrepreneurs act boldly, not constrained by resources currently in hand.
They hold themselves accountable for achieving the social mission and use resources wisely.
They draw upon the best thinking in both the business and nonprofit worlds and operate in all kinds of organizations: large and small; new and old; religious and secular; nonprofit, for-profit, and hybrid. (J. Gregory Dees)
