Ashoka Nordic

Ashoka Nordic is part of Ashoka's global network, the world's largest network of social entrepreneurs and changemakers. 

Ashoka’s country and regional offices around the world co-create and co-lead Ashoka’s programming. This enables our global changemaker community to capture and act upon emerging insights, knowledge, and talents of innovators from a wide range of cultural and regional contexts.


I truly believe in collaboration, across sectors, across organizations and among people with different ideas and approaches. An open mind and passion for change are both crucial ingredients towards real collaboration and this has been evident across my interactions with Ashoka’s network.

Ashoka's Fellowship program is a really unique resource and society platform that thinks more about exponential approaches to scaling, providing a really helpful framework for doing exactly that together with a cohort of experts from the field of social innovation.

Forbes knows that the story is change. No one sees that more clearly than Ashoka. It has an extraordinary ability both to envision the big, new patterns and to engineer their emergence.
