Changing Face of Social Entrepreneurship in India

For several years, social enterprises were often assumed to be idealistic and lacking entrepreneurial ability. In popular imagination, social entrepreneurs were a bunch of middle-aged khadi clad persons in a perpetual activist mode, seething with anger against the society and the establishment. Today’s social entrepreneurs are a picture in contrast. Most of them are young and creative with stellar credentials armed with management acumen to run a social good enterprise as a professional entity.
