About Us

Oxford Social Entrepreneurs is focused on making the world a better place, one social impact project at a time. Read below to learn more about what we do.

Our mission

Our mission is simple: create a more equitable society, through user-enhanced social entrepreneurial action.   

What is social enterprise?

Social enterprises are non-profit businesses designed to maximise social impact around social and environmental issues. Unlike charity bodies, commercial opportunities are used to earn income that is directly added to these projects. 

What is user-generated innovation?

Our social projects are guided from start to spin out by both our advisory board and a selected board specific to each project. We ensure that individuals with personal experience of these social issues are included in refining our social ventures for maximum impact.
