Ashoka is the global organisation that has developed the field of “social entrepreneurship” since 1980 and the first and largest community of system-changing social entrepreneurs (aka Ashoka Fellows).
We find and support entrepreneurial talents and system-changing ideas that solve social problems, and then scale their impact. Over 40+ years, we have worked with leading social entrepreneurs, corporations, the finance industry, and public institutions to address the world’s toughest problems in unprecedented ways. We cover topics ranging from civic engagement and full economic citizenship to youth, environment, health and human rights. And we’re on an ambitious mission: to change whole mindsets and systems towards an “Everyone a Changemaker”-world.
Now, we share the best of our experience in the Ashoka Visionary Program.
