A Social Enterprise is defined as “an enterprise whose objective is to achieve a social, societal or environmental impact, rather than maximizing profit for its owners or shareholders. It pursues its objectives by trading on an ongoing basis through the provision of goods and/or services, and by reinvesting surpluses into achieving social objectives. It is governed in a fully accountable and transparent manner. Source :National Social Enterprise Policy Ireland 2019 -2022
