Social entrepreneurship has been a familiar concept in India for a long time, but the concept of social business is a new phenomenon. Now, social enterprises are also known as ‘fourth generation hybrid enterprises’, offering the potential to transform lives while answering issues of poverty, inequality and environmental challenges. They are scalable, replicable and have the ability to create larger social impact in building sustainable communities. Bala Vikasa facilitates the strengthening of this sector through capacity building, incubation and industry linkages.
