Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsTo conclude, scholars have begun to delineate the distinct domain of social entrepreneurship by identifying different typologies, by examining the potential to address context-specific social problems, and by exploring its implications for total wealth creation. These entrepreneur typologies vary in how they discover social opportunities, determine their impact on the broader social system, and assemble the resources needed to pursue these opportunities. This approach further increases our understanding as to why social entrepreneurship offers solutions to complex social issues by applying business market oriented models. These solutions reflect the unique values that social entrepreneurs hold, and the search processes they follow in identifying, evaluating, and exploiting opportunities in a complex and uncertain world.
