Social Enterprises are revenue-generating businesses. Whether operated by a non-profit organization (NGO) or by a for-profit company, a social enterprise has two goals: to achieve social, cultural, community economic and/or environmental outcomes. Economic goal is a secondary one and for Social Enterprises, this is the way to accomplish the main goal - Social efficiency.

Also, it should be emphasized that in Social Enterprises, in contrast to profit-oriented businesses, decision maker is not an individuals, but entire team of the enterprise.

Size of the enterprises is different and it could be as a village store, as well as a building company. The main issue is, that Social enterprise is an example how can business answer social challanges. Social Entrepreneurs implementing ethic standards in the business sector.
