A True Network of Peers

The E2 Network is home to more than just the world's top business owners and entrepreneurs.

Each E2 Member has a vision for social change — whether it's radically improving employee happiness in the U.S. or reinventing South Korea's education system. E2 Members also possess the drive and resources to bring their vision to life.

And just like Ashoka Fellows, E2 Members recognize the importance of a world where everyone is a changemaker. Through their work, they build and empower changemakers around them: Employees, customers, and the communities they operate in.

Join the World’s Most Powerful Changemakers

Beyond a network of peers, E2 is a platform that connects our members with the world's top social innovators.

Ashoka has pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship since the early 1980s. Today, our Fellowship includes 4,000 of the world's most impactful, highly vetted systems changers, in almost any field imaginable.

E2 Members and Ashoka Fellows are key entrepreneurial partners. E2 Members support our Fellows as co-creators, thought partners, and funders.

Meanwhile, our Fellows provide inspiration, cutting-edge insights, and an incredible opportunity for leveraged impact.

Through these collaborations, we bring our E2 Members' visions to life and catalyze the global impact of our 4,000 Fellows.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is an E-2 Member?

EMembers are highly successful business entrepreneurs who work with Ashoka and our Fellows and other partners to fast-track systemic change for the good of all. 

Why does the E-2 Network exist?

True systems change requires collaboration between different stakeholders, including both the private sector and social sector. Business entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs share the same DNA: They want to solve problems and create social value. The E2 Network brings them together to collaborate, share ideas, and solve some of the world's greatest challenges.

What do E-2 Members do?

In the initial membership phase, E2 Members get to know our Ashoka Fellows, Young Changemakers, and staff, as well as our model for social impact. Once they deeply understand our work and we understand their unique abilities, interests, and desire for impact, we collectively envision and create opportunities for joint action. These initiatives often focus on the world's key issues, such as climate, tech and humanity, migration, or other areas.

What makes the E-2 Network unique?

The E2 Network is different from other professional networks because of the power of Ashoka's existing networks behind it. As a result, E2 Members connect, learn from, and collaborate with not only their peers, but also the world's most impactful changemakers.

What is the time commitment for being an E-2 Member?

This varies, based on each E2 Member's time availability and desire for co-creation. However, even with less time available, we are still able to offer E2 Members concrete pathways to creating powerful impact.
