In today's flexible economy, every company realizes the need of staying ahead of their competition in any way possible. With the advancement in methods of science and in technology there has been an awakening towards many new business techniques. There is one such technique that is making all the difference for companies and businesses.

Social Entrepreneurship is a relatively new thought process in the history of the world. By definition it means the application of business methods to brainstorm solutions to social problems.

Studies have shown that businesses that work for the common good of their local communities do not just help a small part of humanity. They also receive the absolute backing of the community and gain loyal customers.

Unlike previous generations, the current generation of business owners and company start-ups no longer believe in just making a profit. The mindset today in all sectors of the market follows the motto of, "anything is possible". This thought process inspires many companies and organizations to apply social entrepreneurship techniques to aid the people of the local community and bring about social reforms.

Often times this process involves tapping into previously shunned manpower or material resources. People with disabilities often have trouble in getting the jobs they deserve. Their handicap proves to be no obstacle and statistics have shown that workers with disabilities often work harder than their peers in any line of work. For many, however, it can still be a hassle in finding a decent job.

Fortunately, there are companies who utilize social entrepreneurship techniques to not only help people with disabilities, for example, but also their society in general.

One such business is Mission Hammocks. On Mission Hammocks' websit, one can find how each day they strive to make a difference in their community and employ workers with disabilities in making high quality products. Staying dedicated to their company motto of making the best hammock chairs in the world, Mission Hammocks works with social organizations to bring employment to disabled persons in Nicaragua.

Made by hand, Mission Hammocks' workers deliver a hammock chair not just made from the most high quality products, but also with pride and love. Conventional factory made products cannot compete with this dedication and commitment to personalized, hand tailored products.

Businesses that employ methods of social entrepreneurship often serve ideas that are in line with official government interests. Consequently, these companies are known to receive government subsidies and support in their quests to bring positive societal side-effects.

Today, the international market has been transformed into a socially conscious sphere. Companies that employ the use of social entrepreneurship are preferred over their traditional competitors by consumers everywhere. Because social oriented businesses are dedicated to helping the local community, they build a loyal and larger consumer base, which brings more success to a company.
