The research question of the research paper is how social entrepreneurship is developing in Lithuanian enterprises in changing and dynamic business environment. The positive effect of social entrepreneurship is not arguable and its importance is growing in economy overall. The EU has a lot of policy documents and instruments for promoting and fostering social entrepreneurship as future engine of economy.
