This is what we do.

Ashoka has pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship since the early 1980s. Our Fellowship program includes over 4,000 of the world's most impactful social entrepreneurs.

Through the E2 Network, our members support select Ashoka Fellows as mentors and thought partners. They catalyze our Fellows’ impact by deploying their network, influence, and financial capital. And they push the boundaries of what’s possible, by co-creating new and innovative solutions.

The world's most visionary business entrepreneurs


Ashoka's systems thinking & collaborative leadership



Visionary changemakers across the world often speak the same language. All that’s needed is to put them together and give them a clear mandate — say, tackling urban poverty or global deforestation — and magic happens.


Entrepreneur-to-Entrepreneur members go through a rigorous search & selection process. Network members are selected for their ability to change systems — both in their industry and in society. 

A selected member gives generously: experience, energy, resources, and strategic insights.

In return, the E2 Network provides members with an opportunity to:

Exponentially increase the social return of their philanthropic investments

Access a global network of socially committed entrepreneurs and Changemaker Companies

Co-lead a systems-change initiative with global impact
