Ashoka Fellow

Fellow Since 2010
    This description of Sofia Appelgren's work was prepared when Sofia Appelgren was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
    Introduction
    In the close-knit culture of Sweden, corporate hiring operates on networking, personal relationships, and references. To a large degree, immigrant communities do not have access to these resources. Sofia Appelgren has launched a program that matches the most dynamic and entrepreneurial persons with Swedish entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. Beginning in Goteborg on Sweden’s West Coast, the program is poised to spread to Stockholm and Malmo.
