Share a Trend

Ashoka's ability to spot and support social entrepreneurs depends on our network's ability to understand deep social trends as or before they crest – we look for fields or industries that are changing rapidly, where new models are urgently needed.

Our core team can't possibly stay on top of every field in a country the size of the U.S., so we really welcome everyone's help across the network with this core and continuous activity of trend–spotting. If you spot an emerging trend, or learn or read about an emergent issue that needs solving, please share with us. This could mean sending a line or two with your observation, forwarding an especially insightful article link, or sharing a quick synopsis of the book you just read that bears relevance to us as we search for social entrepreneurs - please send to our team at
