Social business deals with economic organizations oriented to social value creation. It is a new concept integrating multiple dimensions and meanings, including managerial experiences of public, private and non-profit organizations. Social business includes contributions from corporate social responsibility, non-profit management, social entrepreneurship, and inclusive business (ie. Bottom of the pyramid). The concept is being consolidated by the evolution of relationships between business and society in the XXI Century.
