When we started over 30 years ago we didn’t want to capture a market – we wanted to generate a network effect to tip the world. Ashoka pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship and we generated opportunities for social entrepreneurs around the world to connect, collaborate, and provide value to one another, multiplying the capacity of each social entrepreneur to improve more lives and to change the world. Now we are witnessing one of the most critical transformations of our time - the transition from a world of elites into one where everyone is a contributing changemaker. As the pace of change accelerates, this is the only way solutions can outrun problems. Join us in creating an everyone a changemaker world.
