Our partners are associations or entrepreneurs’ networks that link us with social innovators willing to scale up but lacking some competencies to be able to do so.
Ashoka is the largest network of social entrepreneurs worldwide, with nearly 3,000 Ashoka Fellows in 70 countries putting their system changing ideas into practice on a global scale.
