Definition: Entrepreneurs is a person who creates and grows an enterprise (Markley et al.). According to Phillips and Pittman (2009) a civic entrepreneur is the one who create programs and resources that benefit our communities and our lives. They develop children’s museums, provide public health care, and build new playgrounds and parks.
Application: In community development work, A civic entrepreneurs could really make a difference in a community that is marginalized by creating programs to meet the marginalized communities need.
Adapt: The theory of civic entrepreneurship could be used by business developer to take opportunities of business potential in marginalized countries or communities. For example, business school in Stanford university reaching out to very distance villagers whose production were getting wasted due to lack of resources, and the business school students trained the villagers on how to store and ultimately to export their production and the business people ultimately makes money as well as the villagers.
