This background is the basis for reflection and an to take an attempt to present the definition of entrepreneurship, which multitude in the literature review exists as the scientific subject. Hence, the aspect of conducted research is individual conditions and direct interviews, allowing to describe the social-economic environment in which current and potential business owners grow. Almost 300 years have passed since the publication of R. Cantillon’s theory lead economy to the creation of works in the field of social entrepreneurship. The entrepreneurship manifestations described by specific examples—coming from the commercial market—made it possible to put forward the thesis that all symptoms are a consequence of achieved profits, or are a derivative of the “road to success”, whose main motive is the desire to make a profit. The issue of entrepreneurship, however, takes on a different connotation when one additional feature of the entrepreneur is added under consideration: his physical disability. Then, social commitment, passion, openness and empathy take on new connotations, from which once again one feature that determines the whole process cannot be selected, only their team. It should be agreed, however, that these processes will seriously imply innovations, which are the “key” to more effective, lasting and with consequences solutions. The projects were carried out separately in Poland and Turkey. Social entrepreneurship described in accordance with the Nshareplatform (NSP) was created for people with physical disabilities in order to create better living conditions and integration with society as active individuals in a dynamically changing economic environment. A support system has been created that enables both networking and reaping benefits for able people who can support disabled people by achieving their goals. The Turkish experience was based on the Liberated Social Entrepreneur and Migport project, which meet the needs of many migrants in Turkey, improving their living conditions, activating socially needed activity, which in turn affects social peace in a country that is burdened with many risks—including political, belonging to the range of basic determinants limiting the economic development of this country.
