How do you pursue a Career in Social Entrepreneurship?

I find a Career in Social Entrepreneurship very interesting. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Social Entrepreneurship actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Social Entrepreneurship. I was Googling about a Career in Social Entrepreneurship and was lucky to find: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20171228-0003/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-Social-Entrepreneurship/english

Abhinav Ahluwalia's perspective!

Abhinav Ahluwalia has worked in Social Entrepreneurship for 7 years. Abhinav Ahluwalia has worked in Social Entrepreneurship as Founder & CEO in KIWI. In Abhinav Ahluwalia's own words, this is how Abhinav Ahluwalia got into Social Entrepreneurship: "After completing my Schooling from The Asian School, I did my Graduation from HP University, Shimla. After that I did my MBA in Rural Management. I worked with Government of Gujarat as a State Consultant of Tribal Development Department. I have worked with 40 odd Development Organizations such as UNDP, Aziz Prem Foundation, Gates and Melinda. I also wrote a book in 2015 called view of India. I also do photography and Interior Designing as a hobby. In 2017 I founded KIWI ( Kisan Window Pvt Ltd)"

Career Video on Social Entrepreneurship

In a video, Abhinav Ahluwalia has talked about various aspects of a Career in Social Entrepreneurship. Abhinav Ahluwalia started by explaining Social Entrepreneurship as: "Social Entrepreneurship is the use of the techniques by start up companies and other entrepreneurs to develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues." It was an amazing video with great information.


I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Social Entrepreneurship and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Social Entrepreneurship. Abhinav Ahluwalia touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Economics
  • Public Policies
  • Current Affairs
  • Development Sector
  • Autobiographies
Anyone aspiring for this Career needs to understand that Skill development is crucial for success.
Abhinav Ahluwalia then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Social Entrepreneurship:
  • Inclusive Behaviour
  • Capacity to Learn
  • Empathy
  • Team Work & Organization
  • Patience
  • Creativity
Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Abhinav Ahluwalia believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Social Entrepreneurship:
  • Small Town Upbringing
  • Societal & Grass root Connection
  • Travelling
  • Business Orientation
There are a few Challenges in this Career which one needs to be cognizant of.
And, Abhinav Ahluwalia believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Entrepreneurship:
  • Bad With Numbers
  • Lack of Financial Resources

In the final section of the video Abhinav Ahluwalia talks about How a day goes in a Career in Social Entrepreneurship. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Social Entrepreneurship, that I have ever come across.
