Social entrepreneurship has been discussed for years to develop and encourage people from diverse communities to come up with a new social venture. Indeed, the idea has been originated from the Social Business concept of Nobel Laureate economist Professor Dr Muhammad Yunus and has become one of the eye-catching concepts in the world stage. Entrepreneurs are considered national assets to be cultivated, motivated and remunerated to the greatest possible extent, and social entrepreneurship, an outcome of Social Business, is going to lead the world towards positive change. It is imperative that the 21st century needs a boost for the potential social entrepreneurs with right business skills, appropriate training and tools, and proper vision to successfully create and grow their businesses. Leaders of the Social Business Academia believe that an integrated effort can make a significant difference in this process to excel faster.
