Social Entrepreneurship seen by Social Entrepreneurs and the General Public


Background/Objectives: With the time of change, inequalities, climatic change and social exclusion, the challenges facing our societies are multiple, and social entrepreneurship continues to assert itself as a vector of solutions. This study is to develop a barometer of social entrepreneurship, to build confidence in social entrepreneurs as to their ability to solve major societal problems. Methods/Findings: In all sectors of activity, it gives meaning to the economy and reconciles economic profitability and societal performance. Initiatives in this direction are numerous and are already preparing a new model of a more sustainable society, more just, more humane. A survey was conducted on the perception of social entrepreneurship among social entrepreneurs and the general public in Morocco. It revealed limited knowledge of social entrepreneurship among the general public. Application/Improvements: This study revealed a confidence of social entrepreneurs in their ability to solve major societal problems. But if the recognition of their impact by the general public is more and more shared, so to make known the action of the social entrepreneurs remains an important challenge.
