Social entrepreneurship is an approach by individuals, groups, start-up companies or entrepreneurs , in which they develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. Social entrepreneurs, however, are either non-profits , or they blend for-profit goals with generating a positive "return to society". Therefore, they use different metrics. Social entrepreneurship typically attempts to further broad social, cultural, and environmental goals often associated with the voluntary sector  in areas such as poverty alleviation, health care and community development. At times, profit-making social enterprises may be established to support the social or cultural goals of the organization but not as an end in themselves. For example, an organization that aims to provide housing and employment to the homeless may operate a restaurant , both to raise money and to provide employment for the homeless. In the social entrepreneurship was facilitated by the use of the Internet , particularly social networking and social media websites.
What is social enterprise and how can it work in the rural context? This resource will explain the basics of social enterprise, including how it can work in the rural context, and the features of rural communities which help social enterprise to thrive. What is social enterprise? Social enterprises exist for different reasons and can take different organisational forms, from a village shop or cooperative, to a community development group or housing association. They often arise out of necessity rather than popularity, as a response to local needs, opportunities and drivers. How does social enterprise work in the rural context?

Rural social enterprises as embedded intermediaries: The innovative power of connecting rural communities with supra-regional networks. The question of how social enterprises foster social innovation in rural regions remains largely unexplored. In this paper, I develop the assumption that the embeddedness of social enterprises in rural communities and their ability to connect rural communities with supra-regional networks and decision makers are crucial preconditions for generating and fostering social innovation in the countryside. By applying the social network approach and a cross-case analysis of social enterprises in rural regions of Austria and Poland, I show how rural social enterprises mobilise ideas, resources and support from external sources not primarily for their own benefit but for that of their rural region. As embedded intermediaries, they contribute to transformational change and wellbeing, albeit they are only one of many forces that drive rural development.
