Social entrepreneurs focus on creation of social value because of the existence of residual values taking non financial forms and possibility of investments for support to economic growth and social progress. Social enterprises tend to behave as hybrid organizations that tend to combine different and multiple logics. Rurality as dynamic concept and multi-faceted process helps define a specific territorially and entrepreneurial milieu shaping the entrepreneurial process as autonomous source for driving development. Multi-functionality in agriculture and rural development as new emerging paradigms seem to drive rural entrepreneurial organizations to behave as hybrids managing multiple logics of doing business jointly with creating social value within territories and for communities. European rural development policies should contribute to support farm sector and rural areas sustaining the competitiveness of agriculture, ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources, the climate action and the balanced territorial development of rural areas and programs oriented to assign to agriculture a strategic and social role to preserve and protect landscapes, environment, natural asset and biodiversity by opening up new spaces and opportunities for driving entrepreneurship bridging rural and social aspects and components leading to hybrid organizations managing different logics and working for creation of social and economic value for society and communities.
