Social Enterprise is defined by Enterprise Law 2014 of Vietnam a type of business which has specific social and environmental objectives and commits to reinvest at least 51% of its profits to serve the identified social and environmental causes. The Ecosystem for social enterprise is known as elements, factors which support and promote the development of social enterprises, which include essentially market competition, legal and policy framework, financial instruments, human resource market, education and research activities, media communication and intermediaries.

In Vietnam, it is emerging as a new business sector which use business model to solve social problem. However, academic publications in the field are still limited.
