Corporate Social Entrepreneurship

Corporate Social Entrepreneurship (CSE) relates to both personal characteristics and particular behaviors. It is thus defined as an employee of a corporation who operates in a socially entrepreneurial manner, i.e., identifying opportunities for and/or championing socially responsible activity, in addition to their formal job role in working toward achieving the firm’s business targets. It’s concerns are with both the development of social capital and economic capital, and the formal job role of a CSE may not necessarily be connected with corporate social responsibility, nor does a CSE have to be in an executive or management position.
