ABOUT US

 

Thirty-five years ago, Ashoka changed the framework of the social sector by introducing the idea that there is nothing more powerful than a bold, new idea in the hands of an exceptional entrepreneur.

 

We have built a fellowship of leading social entrepreneurs who catalyze irreversible social change through an innovative idea. Our network of Fellows is now over 3000 innovators strong and spans 85 countries. In addition, the field of social entrepreneurship has grown into a global force.

 

Ashoka is moving towards its next paradigm shift: a world in which everyone can be a changemaker, someone who actively and forcefully changes the patterns and systems around them for the greater good. We’re bringing together a team of entrepreneurs and builders around the world to help us get there. If this sounds like the kind of institution you want to help create, consider joining us.

·      Increasing awareness about Ashoka, social entrepreneurs, and the “Everyone a Changemaker” movement through strategic partnerships with changemakers from a diversity of sectors: business, media, academia, citizen sector, etc.

 

The ideal candidate will:

• Exhibit a history of entrepreneurship; they’ve started new organizations or changed the direction of existing ones based on their own, original ideas.

• Understand and resonate with Ashoka’s “Everyone A Changemaker” vision and its societal context.
