Nowadays, young people are increasingly coming together to develop socially responsible activities in their companies, schools and communities. Take note of these tips to be a successful social entrepreneur.
1. Go beyond the illusion
Sometimes a social entrepreneur has the illusion of starting with his or her idea, but he or she needs to make his or her initiative sustainable.
