Abstract
The term 'social entrepreneurship' has gained increasing attentions, especially in the academic field. Scholars claim that the language of social entrepreneurship may emerge in the recent years, however, the phenomenon goes the other way. This essay aims to present the key issues related to today's social entrepreneurship. The differences between the two types of entrepreneurship will be defined in the conceptual part. Then, the nature of social entrepreneurship is analyzed deeply and the outcomes made by social entrepreneurs are expected to show. In the second part, StreetShine, a UK's leading social enterprise, will be used as a typical case to explain how social entrepreneurs create social value and how they work differently from philanthropy.
