A social enterprise is when an organization works to combat or solve a basic need or social problem by using the market or a commercial approach. Some non-profits tend to use this method so that they can bring in funds to help the problem or situation instead of only depending on donations (which can take a while).
For example, unSHAKEable is a milkshake business that works in connection with the non-profit organization Sunshine Recovery House. These two establishments are both connected and are working towards the same goal: second chances and stability for women who have faced addiction. All of the proceeds made from unSHAKEable go towards maintaining women recovering from addiction.
