Money and Mission
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Entrepreneurs are often regarded as the most innovative in our societies. Social entrepreneurs are the ones that are coming up with new innovative ways of confronting societal issues. The government and business sectors are not always capable or even willing to fix societal ills. Therefore social entrepreneurs identify what the issues are, and attempt to solve them through innovative means rather than depend on other sectors to come up with solutions. Their goals are often for the greater good of society. This is accomplished through the social enterprises that they operate. These social enterprises operate within the boundaries of the private and non-profit sectors. The for-profit and nonprofit models are combined, thus the goal is a social mission and a service (product) is offered to generate profits to fund the social mission.
