Social Enterprise A social enterprise is currently defined as an enterprise that seeks to achieve social, cultural, or environmental aims through the sale of goods and services in which the majority of net profits must be directed to a social objective (e.g., reducing environmental impacts of its products or including local training in the community) with limited distribution to shareholders and owners.
