“The pandemic is exposing how broken many of our systems and democratic institutions are,” said Simon Stumpf, Director of Venture and Fellowship at Ashoka U.S. “More than ever, we are thankful for social entrepreneurs who know the problems inside and out, and calmly and creatively step forward with solutions for the common good.”
