As shown by a comparative analysis of those measures that are being implemented, Russia is not inferior to many Western countries with the exception of only one. There are still very few of the subjects involved in the implementation of state programs, more precisely, whose competence is to determine measures to support entrepreneurship in the framework of the state program to support small business, it is clear what social entrepreneurship is and why they are engaged in it.
