    • Social enterprises are organisations that:
    • a. Are led by an economic, social, cultural, or environmental mission consistent with a public or community benefit;
    • b. Trade to fulfil their mission¹ ;
    • c. Derive a substantial portion of their income from trade² ;
    • d. Reinvest the majority of their profit/surplus in the fulfilment of their mission.
    • ¹Where trade is defined as the organised exchange of goods and services, including:
      • monetary, non-monetary and alternative currency transactions, where these are sustained activities of an enterprise; contractual sales to governments , where there has been an open tender process ; and
      • trade within member-based organisations, where membership is open and voluntary or where membership serves a traditionally marginalised social group.
    • ²Operationalised as 50% or more for ventures that are more than five years from start-up, 25% or more for ventures that are three to five years from start-up, and demonstrable intention to trade for ventures that are less than two years from start-up.
    • Social Enterprises take a number of forms and deliver outcomes as diverse as employment for the disadvantaged, important goods and services or fundraising for other charitable activities and community projects.
  • 7. A social enterprise is defined as any business venture created for a  social purpose --mitigating/reducing a social problem or a market failure--and to generate  social value  while operating with the financial discipline, innovation and determination of a private sector business. Social enterprises use entrepreneurship, innovation and market approaches to create social value and change; they usually share the following characteristics: Social Purpose   - created to generate social impact and change by solving a social problem or market failure; Enterprise Approach   – uses business vehicles, entrepreneurship, innovation, market approaches, strategic-orientation, discipline and determination of a for-profit business; Social Ownership  – with a focus on public good and stewardship, although not necessarily reflected in the legal structure. Social enterprises may be structured as a department within an organization or as a separate legal entity , either a subsidiary nonprofit or for-profit. The purpose of the social enterprise may be: an additional funding mechanism for the organization’s social programs or operating costs; a sustainable program mechanism in support of the organization's mission ; or a leadership development mechanism in support of social innovation. Used for either purpose, business success and social impact are interdependent .
