SELECTING AND SUPPORTING LEADING INNOVATORS

HOW DO WE IDENTIFY LEADERS CHANGING THE SYSTEMS?

Ashoka engages the world’s largest and most powerful network of social entrepreneurs by searching for and selecting the world’s leading social entrepreneurs: Ashoka Fellows. Ashoka pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship almost 40 years ago, and today it continues to build the largest global network of leading social entrepreneurs.

Ashoka searches the world for leading social entrepreneurs through an intensive, human-centered process, selecting them into our global, trust-based fellowship of peers. Across the globe, we use the following selection criteria and the process (Venture process) to elect Ashoka Fellows:

 

Since launching Ashoka in the Netherlands in 2014, we have elected and supported a number of Dutch social innovators who are bringing system change in the Netherlands and beyond.

ENABLING ENTREPRENEURS TO CHANGE SYSTEMS AND LEAD US INTO A WORLD IN WHICH EVERYONE CAN BE A CHANGEMAKER

We make sure that the Ashoka brand, the engagements we curate and facilitate, and the connections we open are valuable to each Fellow. We invite Fellows to make the most of the network through interactions that will increase their chances for deepening their social impact.

 

ASHOKA NETHERLANDS IS DELIVERING VALUE FOR OUR FELLOWS IN ACROSS 5 KEY AREAS:

Ashoka Changemaker Schools

We believe that anyone can become a changemaker and we strive for a world in which every young person is equipped and inclined to contribute to the common good. In order to empower every young person to become a changemaker, we need to change the way in which we educate young people. Ashoka launched the Changemaker Schools Programme in 2012 to build a community of education institutions that prioritize the cultivation of empathy, teamwork, leadership, and changemaking in their students.  

Ashoka Netherlands has selected 9 Changemaker Schools. Once selected, the schools are connected with each other and with Ashoka’s community of social entrepreneurs and supporters from different sectors with the aim of reshaping the traditional education system.
