This chapter discusses inclusive economic development, with a particular focus on social enterprises as one way in which inclusive economic development can be achieved. Inclusive economic development is an approach that addresses many of the issues of inequality and unsustainability that have emerged from more traditional economic development approaches. Recognizing some of the key limitations of social entrepreneurship, the chapter notes that social entrepreneurship is not a panacea for all the social and ecological issues that we face. Nonetheless, it argues that social enterprises present a strong and viable alternative to the traditional for-profit/not-for-profit silos and an important driver of inclusive economic development.
