Ashoka identifies and supports the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, learns from the patterns in their innovations, and mobilizes a global community that embraces these new frameworks to build an “everyone a changemaker world.” We find and cultivate social entrepreneurs in every corner of the world, whose system-changing innovations solve deep-rooted social problems. After a rigorous application process, we invite them into the Ashoka Fellowship – providing early stage financial support and a lifetime membership into an expansive network of peers and partners – enabling them to achieve their vision and have even greater impact. Ashoka sets its strategic priorities by drawing on the insights of a core group of Fellows whose work reveals an opportunity for catalyzing transformative change. These Fellows serve as co-leaders of a movement that contributes to an “everyone a changemaker” society.
