Social Innovation

Social innovation is the creation of new ideas that address social problems by reconceiving the status quo to create more sustainable and just systems that benefit marginalized groups and society as a whole.

Social Innovation starts with an idea-one with the power to change everything.

These innovations may be introduced to society through several approaches including social entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, public policy, community organizing, and social movements.

Social Entrepreneurship & Intrapreneurship 

Social entrepreneurship implements social innovation through the creation of new organizations of various forms including non-profit, hybrid and for-profit. Social intrapreneurship introduces similar innovations through existing organizations.

Social Enterprises 

Social enterprises are organizations whose business models prioritize social justice motives, stakeholder accountability, and reinvestment in mission over the strict financial returns.
