Another interesting social entrepreneur is Eric Kim, the CEO of dot, which makes Braille smart watches for the blind.

These social entrepreneurs came up with new solutions to social problems that are more efficient, effective, sustainable and fair than the existing options for the less privileged people.

We call such solutions ‘social innovations.’
