New Report Launch- New Allies: How INGOs and Social Entrepreneurs collaborate to transform Global Development
Join us on the online launch of Ashoka’s brand-new report: New Allies: How International Non-Governmental Organizations and Social Entrepreneurs collaborate to transform Global Development
How can social entrepreneurs and INGOs collaborate to drive systems change?
What barriers do they face in the attempt working together?
What are critical success factors for these partnerships?
There is relatively little research on how INGOs collaborate with social entrepreneurs to catalyze new and innovative strategies for tackling pressing global issues, but a clear urgency to understand and support the role of INGOs in driving social innovation in collaboration with social entrepreneurs.
In this report, based on interviews, surveys and a range of events, Ashoka identified 14 actions that INGOs, social entrepreneurs, funders, and intermediaries can take to unlock the potential of these collaborations and systemic social innovation.
We would like to thank CARE, Austrian Development Agency and Catalyst 2030 for its steadfast and always-inspiring partnership in this work.
