What is a Social Innovator?
Social innovators are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change. Rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, social innovators find what is not working and solve the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution, and persuading entire societies to take new leaps.
