Nowadays societies face many societal challenges, among which increasing inequality and marginalisation. This paper uses this key to read the discussion undertaken during the DRUID Conference 2015 âRelevance of Innovationâ, held at LUISS Business School (Rome, IT). We focus on the speeches, sessions, and debates that were hosted at the conference. We expand them and build on them to advance scholarly discussion on how social innovation, social entrepreneurship and business model innovation can be used to face inequality and marginalisation. The main idea we place at the centre of the discussion is empowerment of marginalised individuals by social innovation initiatives and social entrepreneurial ventures. Business model innovation is seen as instrumental to this, being a crucial tool to foster hybrid organisations and institutions able to merge the social and economic dimensions.
