In a first attempt to measure the scale of social enterprise in the general business population, this report by Delta Economics and IFF Research finds that 54% of the North East’s growth-oriented entrepreneurs set up a company because they want to make a difference. 22.4% of the region’s growth oriented entrepreneurs can lay claim to being social entrepreneurs, even though they are set up as for profit companies. These 'hidden social enterprises' do not identify themselves as social entrepreneurs but nevertheless conform to accepted definitions of social enterprise.
