Program Goals

We share the extensive know-how, experience and tool kits that Ashoka has developed over the last 35 years. Ashoka developed the field of social entrepreneurship and has activated multi-sector partners across the world. The core competence is to find and support entrepreneurial talents and new ideas that solve social problems.

Founded by Bill Drayton in 1980, Ashoka has provided start-up financing, professional support services and connections to a global network of 3,500 Fellows across the business and social sectors. It provides a platform for people dedicated to changing the world. Based on these experiences we have developed numerous tools to promote and scale social innovation and entrepreneurial approaches to societal issues. For the first time the whole spectrum of these approaches is being assembled and will be made available exclusively in this program.
