Creative and energetic leaders play an essential part in making societies work. When they are active in politics we call them national leaders; when they turn their attentions to commerce we call them entrepreneurs. By naming them, we recognise them, give them status, help them exploit their full potential. In one part of our society, however, we too often fail to name these leaders, to recognise their qualities and the contributions they can make. We rarely provide adequate support to their efforts: indeed, often our institutions work against them. And yet our lives are influenced by these people, and our future may actually depend on them. These are the ‘community-based social entrepreneurs’.
