5 Successful Socially Responsible Start-Ups 

What Is Social Entrepreneurship?

Social Entrepreneurship is a phrase that is becoming all powerful in this growing age of the Millennials market. It has also been described as a company being socially responsible. This diverse and utilitarian phrase can be attributed to multiple founders because no one really knows where it came from. Muhammad Yunas was said to have contributed to its modern understanding through the creation of Grameen Banka Nobel Peace Prize-winning microfinance organization and community development bank founded in Bangladesh. It makes small loans (known as microcredit or "grameencredit") to the impoverished without requiring collateral.
 Authors of an article posted in The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal posted that "Social entrepreneurship in modern society offers an altruistic form of entrepreneurship that focuses on the benefits that society may reap."(Wee-Liang, Williams, John, and Tan, Teck-Meng. "Defining the ‘Social’ in ‘Social Entrepreneurship’: Altruism and Entrepreneurship." The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal. no. 3 (2005): 353-365.)
