“Social Entrepreneurship: A Practical Introduction” is the go-to handbook for people seeking to combat societal issues like poverty, racism, climate change, hunger and more using entrepreneurial techniques. Around the world, a growing number of people believe that social problems are an opportunity for social transformation. Some take this belief and turn it into a business that combats problems plaguing their communities. These people are called social entrepreneurs. Some run nationally recognized companies like Seventh Generation in the United States that sells environmentally friendly personal care and household products. Others run small businesses like Blended Kitchen in Sheffield, England that offers job training and employment opportunities to marginalized people. “Social Entrepreneurship: A Practical Introduction” aims to inspire, educate, and equip change makers to use social entrepreneurship as a tool for advancing positive social change in their communities. It provides readers the tools needed to align their socially conscious goals to commercial revenue generating activity. Dr. Weaver has also created a downloadable workbook that offers support with checklists, social impact measurement, and other areas. In addition, she has created an instructor manual containing test questions and experiential exercises. This book is ideal for introductory courses in social entrepreneurship and community development. It will also be valuable for those involved in social enterprises on the ground.
