One might wonder, how was social entrepreneurship come to existence? While the idea of social enterprise go back as far as to 1649 (Spreckley, 1981), the term social enterprise was first introduced by Freer Spreckley in 1978 (Wikipedia (a)). The two words, social and enterprise seem paradoxical to be put together. Entrepreneurs, generally linked to their action of making profits for themselves and the shareholders, seem unlikely to be associated with social interests. While this is not entirely true, but the typical Ebenezer Scrooge type of entrepreneurs will always be in people’s minds

Entrepreneurship in the Bible

In previous posts, I have made the argument that entrepreneurship is a creative act made possible by the creative impulse that God gave us. In addition, it requires certain personal traits that God desires us to have.

If this is so, then that leads to the next logical question: Does the Bible provide examples of entrepreneurs?

Scripture contains several cases of entrepreneurship, but we must first make sure that we are using the proper definition of the word. Entrepreneurship is a creative act that brings higher levels of satisfaction to people, results in more order, and finds ways to create greater value than existed before.

This is a working definition for this post, and you can read a more sophisticated and detailed explanation of entrepreneurship here.
