In her recent HuffPost blog, YouthBuild founder and CEO Dorothy Stoneman writes that “social entrepreneurship” has actually been around for a long time: “The idea that individuals create solutions to social problems, raise philanthropic dollars to replicate them, and then ‘take them to scale’ with public funds, to solve the big problems across the land, is not really new. But the relatively new title of ‘social entrepreneur’ has caught the imagination of foundations and public leaders, and attracts the idealistic activists who feel that creating something wonderful is more satisfying than attacking something that isn't working.”
