Social entrepreneurship

Creating desirable and sustainable solutions to tackle social, cultural, economic, and environmental challenges through products or services. An entrepreneurial social project uses passion and daring to create a transformation—whether it’s within the community or the system at large. The process is inherently transparent and the profits are a means to an end as opposed to an end in itself. Social impact prevails!

Definition created by piecing together a collection of captivating readings.

Intrapreneurship

Slowpreneur

Between the pace of the hare and the tortoise, there exists a space to work at your own speed. Fine-tuning an idea, assembling the mechanisms, and creating the necessary collaborations requires care and—especially—time. Avoid burning yourself out in a sprint to the finish and instead embark on a mission that balances your priorities (caregiving, grandparents, hobbies, etc.).

Social participation

Social participation refers to all the significant and satisfying relationships that make an individual feel socially included. This means being connected to and feeling a part of an inclusive social environment that’s in line with your life goals and needs. Stimulating social participation is anchored in an individual’s history, reality, interests, wants, and abilities.

Social innovation

This is about becoming aware of a social challenge and dissecting it to better understand its context and complexity, then creating a framework for an alternative, more inclusive future that uses collaboration as a vehicle for creating solutions. Innovating socially requires us to continually question our perceptions, ways of working, the power dynamics around us, and the social impact in order to create transformative relationships.
