Pillar II : Support to early-stage social entrepreneurs

The second Pillar of this program aims at building a solid pipeline of social entrepreneurs  in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a special focus on SDC priority countries, starting with 20  new  Ashoka Fellows. All candidates must comply with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) criteria. The infograph below depicts their fellowship journey once these new fellows are elected  and how we support them on their path.
