Social Innovation

Social innovations are new strategies, concepts, ideas and organizations that meet the social needs that are more efficient and sustainable from improvements in working conditions to education; community development to healthcare solutions that extend and strengthen civil society. Just like entrepreneurs find creative solutions to problems, social entrepreneurs address systemic social problems with innovative, yet pragmatic solutions that are often changes to existing models.
