Do Good, Do Well: Social Enterpreneurship for Kosovo

  2. 2. Social Entrepreneurship Defined • A Textbook (if unsatisfying) Definition • Functional Definition
  3. 3. Martin and Osberg define social entrepreneurship as having the following three components: 1. Identifying a stable but inherently unjust equilibrium that causes the exclusion, marginalization, or suffering of a segment of humanity that lacks the financial means or political clout to achieve any transformative benefit on its own; 2. Identifying an opportunity in this unjust equilibrium, developing a social value proposition, and bringing to bear inspiration, creativity, direct action, courage, and fortitude, thereby challenging the stable state’s hegemony; and 3. Forging a new, stable equilibrium that releases trapped potential or alleviates the suffering of the targeted group, and through imitation and the creation of a stable ecosystem around the new equilibrium ensuring a better future for the targeted group and even society at large.
