Progressives are accustomed to seeing work for social justice and environmental sustainability being expressed in political advocacy and in direct service to victims of injustice. We often are not aware of the ways in which we are not alone in our work for justice, but have allies in the business community. This chapter explores this burgeoning world of social entrepreneurship, its drivers, its impact, and its practical and ethical challenges.
