One of Denmark's probably most interesting S-ENT start-ups in last years is Baisikeli (http://www.baisikeli.dk/). The organisation, which was launched by two cousins, aims to help African community acquire cheap and reliable transporationin the form of bycicles. Baisikelis products are special designs aimed at the African market - sturdy, easy to repair and affordable. Apart from normal bikes Basikeli offers also hospital bikes (that can be used to transport the ill).

Baisikelis business model draws on a number of elements: it collects old bikes and bike parts in Denmark which are then transported to Tansania and Sierra Leone where bike repair shops produce for the local market.Moreover, Baisikeli produces also bikes in Denmark which are rented to private as well as business clients as an earned income model which finances the shipping of bikes to Africa.

Only few ideas have been as successful as Social Entrepreneurship (S-ENT) over the past decade. And yet we still face a myriad of views on what S-ENT actually means. Given the very innovativeness of our area of interest it is not surprising that its boundaries seem to shift permanently. So how is it that this blog claims the existence of a `Nation of Social Innovation´? Renan speaks of a nation as a daily referendum. Following this idea our blog wants to contribute to this public vote on what S-ENT is by providing a regular stream of ideas and examples of Social Entrepreneurship from Denmark and from around the world. Let us together live and redefine the Nation of Social Innovation day by day.
