In a perfect world, we might not need the term ‘social enterprise’. Businesses would think in terms of global impact and well being, and reap a profit as a secondary reward for improving the economic and environmental well being of their community. In reality most businesses think in terms of profit – the value of improving humanity’s condition is a secondary consideration.
There are two truths to consider when approaching social enterprise and awareness: one is that healthy business can be a gateway to creating meaningful social, economic, cultural, and environmental change. The second is that it’s not easy to live in both worlds – that is maximizing business success while achieving first and foremost the social impact desired.

We subscribe to the idea that if an organization has the will to start social enterprise, SEI will always be in a position to deliver the way. Any business, or any size, on any system.
