"You can be entrepreneurial even if you don't want to be in business. You can be a social entrepreneur focused on the not-for-profit sector. You can be an agriculture entrepreneur if you want to change how people think about farming. You can be a policy entrepreneur if you want to go into government. The idea of an entrepreneur is really thinking out of the box and taking risks and stepping up to major challenges."

Sanjay Bickram Rana spent his summer helping others in Costa Rica. He writes:
Most of us have this image of a social entrepreneur as an individual who receives prestigious awards or gains international recognition for his/her work, or even as someone who appears on television in various shows such as Ted Talks, and astonishes the viewers with stories of innovation and change. It is therefore of no surprise that one may encounter many individuals, particularly those from the younger generation, who are all striving to be social entrepreneurs with the aim of changing the world. Many however fail to realize that being a social entrepreneur is not that glamorous of a career after all. Read more...
