Ashoka identifies and develops the world’s leading social entrepreneurs to serve as catalysts for change by providing them with the financial support, technical guidance and robust network for collaboration.  The organization focuses on developing effective models that advance the field of social entrepreneurship and inspire everyday citizens to become powerful changemakers.
