For 30 years, Ashoka has been at the forefront of identifying and supporting the leading social entrepreneurs who are changing patterns and transforming systems. Through its Venture process, Ashoka finds and supports the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. It is the flagship model on which Ashoka was founded, and it remains the heart of Ashoka.
We believe that the growth of a global citizen sector begins with the work of individual social entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs drive the sector forward, responding to new challenges and changing needs. They are rooted in local communities but think and act globally. They are the ultimate role models and the pillars of Ashoka’s vision of Everyone a Changemaker.
