To understand what is knowledge-based social entrepreneurship, we need to delve into the concepts of the entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs. The chapter provides definitions of entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, and knowledge-based social entrepreneurship. It clarifies who is an entrepreneur and how social entrepreneurs differ from conventional entrepreneurs. The chapter looks into various traits that make a person an entrepreneur.
