By: Tiana Reid - Published: Apr 4, 2012 • References: & facebook
'Academies for Social Entrepreneurship' (ASE) is an all-in-one program encouraging the success rate of social enterprises and social businesses. More specifically, the team also works with not-for-profit organizations and works toward making them more sustainable through diversifying their revenue streams.

Seeing as definitions for social enterprise vary, and there are countless debates on the blogosphere and in academic channels on what exactly it means (and if an outright definition even matters), ASE's definition is the following: "Social enteprises are ‘more-than-profit’ businesses that use blended-value models to create a revenue-generating business with a social-value-generating element."

The featured video shows a high-energy event where social entrepreneurs pitch their business model to a few judges who guide them along the way.
