The importance of this research is that the role of social entrepreneur is essential and it the further readers of this paper have to know what is it about and how his role is important to the society. In a rapidly changing entrepreneurial world, the leading players, whether they come from large companies or from government, they share ideas and initiatives to ameliorate the present society. After reading three articles, the essay is about a summary of the articles with paragraphs that each represents a discipline (economics, sociology or psychology) and that all support the thesis that social entrepreneurs revolutionize society on many levels. By working to find financial funds, by working as a team and by working with people with disabilities within their teams, social entrepreneurs resolve slowly but surely society’s needs. This work went further in the observation of the role of a social entrepreneur with the examination of specific disciplines. Maybe it would be interesting for further research to specify what are the actions a social entrepreneur takes to change the world.
