Britain is blessed with inspiring social entrepreneurs driven by a desire to improve the lives of their fellow citizens. They lead organisations bent on finding sustainable solutions for entrenched social problems. These organisations are social ventures - and it's time to get behind them. The authors need their innovative approaches if they are to build a bigger, stronger society. They need their involvement to open up and decentralise their public services. But to do more, social ventures need easier access to capital. They need capital just as businesses do - to finance their expansion and build their resilience.
