Social enterprises are new types of businesses "set up to tackle a social or environmental need" (socialenterprise.org.uk). They use a blended business model: they measure success, not just by the financial bottom-line, but also by the social/environmental change they are able to create.

According to socialenterprise.org.uk, in 2005 there were 55,000 of such social enterprises only in the UK with a combined turnover of £27 billion. Watch the video below and learn how these new types of businesses are shaping the world we live in.
