In this chapter, we focus on entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility. More specifically, we focus on the role of entrepreneurship in furthering a distinct form of social good, that is, the integration of disadvantaged populations in the society, and the related provision of economic opportunity to such groups. The disadvantaged groups we focus on include women, minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities, and people living in disadvantaged economies. We address their access to entrepreneurship through startups of their own (entrepreneurship by the disadvantaged) as well as through social entrepreneurship (entrepreneurship for the disadvantaged).
