Summary/Abstract: Social entrepreneurship is characterised by a high degree of creativity and innovation, not only in technical terms but also in relation to management-social aspects. Social entrepreneurship is a relatively young sector which is not legally addressed in the Czech Republic. Its development dates back to the 19th century but its main development comes in the second half of the 20th century. The objective of this paper is to assess the current issues faced by social businesses - at the local level- in the city of Brno. The main research question is to identify blank spots in social entrepreneurship. To assess the specific problems of the social entrepreneurship, the method of qualitative survey in selected social businesses has been selected. At the same time, we have carried out an analysis of the cooperation between public administration and social businesses in selected cities.
