Abstract:     
El emprendimiento social surgió en los últimos 20 años como una opción de renovación del campo y de la idiosincrasia de la acción y el activismo social. Al permitir y promover la integración de una variedad de actores y agentes socio-económicos, tanto de las esferas públicas como privadas, lucrativas como no lucrativas, hizo posible nuevas formas y expresiones de innovación social que dieron lugar tanto a nuevos modelos de negocios como a nuevas prácticas, estrategias y filosofías corporativas.

Considerando el recorrido relativamente reciente de la disciplina, este artículo pretende aproximarse a la definición del emprendimiento social y justificar su necesaria entrada en el campo académico, en particular en el seno de la Universidad Central.

Social entrepreneurship has surfaced those last 20 years as an option to renovate the field and idiosyncrasy of social action and activism. As it enables and even promotes the integration of a variety of socio-economic agents, from the private and public spheres, no matter whether they are for-profit or not, it has made possible new forms and expressions of social innovation which gave birth not only to new business models but also to new corporate practices, strategies and philosophy.

Considering the relatively recent development of the theme, this article pretends to give a hindsight of the definition of social entrepreneurship and justify its necessary entrance within the field and scope of academic studies, in particular within the Central University.
