The Netherlands is home to many entrepreneurs whose businesses are about more than just making a financial profit. Theirs is, above all, a social aim, and they’ve embraced a rewarding, innovative approach: if their business grows, these social entrepreneurs immediately have a bigger impact on society, making a positive contribution to social issues like participation in the labour market, social cohesion and climate change.
