Entrepreneurs are one of the most powerful groups for affecting change around the world, creating unique economic opportunities and spurring local economies.

It is social entrepreneurs who seek to generate social value and not just profits and are acting as the catalyst for developments that create long-term global good. As interest around social entrepreneurship grows and more people work to find solutions to large-scale social problems, government policies at the highest level must adapt as well, creating resolutions, laws and guidelines that foster entrepreneurship globally and allow social entrepreneurs to do the most good.
