What is a Social Enterprise?

Social enterprises may be non-profit or for-profit, and they exist to create significant social or ecological impact. They have values that are evident in all aspects of their work and a mission they are accountable for. They’re driven not only by what they can accomplish but also how they accomplish it, and they practice transparency, in governance or business processes. Most importantly, they aim for financial and human sustainability consistent with RSF Social Finance’s mission and values.
