Abstract: The contribution attempts to explicit the role of the social entrepreneur. There are countless examples of social entrepreneurs that can be cited from around the world. Social entrepreneurs' personality, temperament and characteristics have been studied by a great number of researchers. The focus has generally been "who social entrepreneur is". However, few researches have stressed "what social entrepreneur does", what are his actions and the effects of his actions. This is what the present paper tries to address and explore. The use of qualitative case study approach offers rich social entrepreneurial discovery data. However, due to the scant number of interviews, the present analysis can be considered an exploratory study. Future researches can gather data on a large scale, using variegate samples, to generalise results to a large population.
