Invest in social entrepreneurs wherever we find them
With Ashoka's Global Venture Fund, my family and I share in supporting the most creative people in every field and on every continent. The opportunity to connect our resources with such transformative global change is invaluable for everyone involved. Clearly, it’s one of the most satisfying and effective investments we’ve made.”
- Charles Oswald, The Oswald Family Foundation
The Global Venture Fund is the primary mechanism that allows us to select and support Ashoka Fellows on any topic, in any country, wherever impactful innovation is naturally emerging. As innovation tends to occur on the boundaries of definitions, sectors and industries the Global Venture Fund allows us to respond to areas of greatest need and opportunity.
Through the Global Venture Fund, along with other generous gifts and corporate partnerships, we have invested over $100,000,000 in empowering social entrepreneurs around the world!
Help us support social entrepreneurs around the world to reach their next level of impact. Donate online!
