The term Sociapreneur was born of the vision of the founder of Sociapreneur.com to draw a separation between entrepreneurs who build for-profit and Sociapreneurs, individuals and organisations who build for social change or socia; profit.
Many stated that the 1950s was a time of great social change. If social change was only about the introduction of several 'mod cons' into the home, which meant that women, who typically took care of the running of the home, benefitted the most. If social change was only about the inventions men created to make women's life easier, the term sociapreneur would not have been able to be part of the language to describe agents of social change we recognise today.
The pace of social change in British society gathered speed by the end of the nineteenth century and put Britain at the forefront of reform ahead of the rest of the developed world. At this point, Britain had become the first and for a short time, the only fully industrialised nation
