The current millennium is characterized with several global problems including unemployment, poverty, hunger, starvation, social exclusion, and environmental degradation. These social, economic, and environmental trends require the changes in current world order to provide such global mechanism where basic needs of each person will be satisfied and each person will have equal rights to resources and opportunity to utilize his full human potential. Entrepreneurship is an important driver that can transform a society towards a more sustainable future. Sustainopreneurship has emerged as a mutual product of sustainability and entrepreneurship. Nations have included the entrepreneurship in their developmental agenda for achieving the sustainable development goals. The purpose of this chapter is to briefly discuss the concept of sustainable entrepreneurship, its definition, evolution of the concept, and transition from sustainable development to Sustainopreneurship as a mechanism for disruptive innovations.
