The scope of this dissertation is to approach the concept of social enterprises in the modern environment, their role and the study of different models of social and solidarity institutions of the economy, which are part of the social enterprises. The dissertation is divided in three parts. It starts with the concept of entrepreneurship as a whole, then it deals with the concept of the social enterprises and ends with examples of social enterprises. To start with, we approach the concept of entrepreneurship as well as its major forms. The concept of entrepreneurship is not unique and therefore there is not a single definition of it. In this dissertation we will examine various aspects of this concept. In order to better understand the term of social enterprises, we will refer to the motives which drive somebody to become an entrepreneur and we will describe certain forms of entrepreneurship. We then examine the concept of social economy and of social entrepreneurship. We focus on the concept and the characteristics of the social entrepreneur by citing examples of major personalities of this type of entrepreneurship. Finally, we elaborate on the institutional framework which governs the social economy and entrepreneurship in Greece. We close by selecting certain social enterprises which are active both internationally as well as locally and which are of interest. In general, we try to present the subject of the social economy as an autonomous form of entrepreneurship, which has shown particular development in recent years and occupies an increasing part in the world economic scene.
