Helping social entrepreneurs to access capital and resources to scale up their initiatives
When she was 10 years old and with the help of her mother Ashoka social entrepreneur Valeria Budinich transformed a children's game into a lesson only she would understand years later: that markets can be powerful forces for good, but only if everyone can participate and the rules are fair.

To do so, one needs to adapt quickly and seize opportunities at a rapid rate. Mobilizing others around an idea is practice for seizing new opportunities down the line. But this new paradigm for the world requires a new kind of leadership that empowers others and ensures fairness so that benefits from this rapid change do not concentrate in the hands of a few.
