Social entrepreneurship is, at its most basic level, doing business for a social cause.

Social entrepreneurs combine commerce and social issues in a way that improves the lives of people connected to the cause. They don’t measure their success in terms of profit alone – success to social entrepreneurs means that they have improved the world, however they define that.

Here are 7 skills most social entrepreneurs have.

  • Recognizing unjust social issues
  • Identifying business opportunities
  • Inspiring change through participation
  • Taking direct action
  • Public speaking
  • Fighting adversity
  • Creativity
