About Me

We build networks of pattern-changing social innovators and select high-impact entrepreneurs, who creatively solve some of the world’s biggest social challenges, to become Ashoka Fellows.

Ashoka believes that there is nothing more powerful than a new idea in the hands of a social entrepreneur. Social entrepreneurs are relentless team-builders and problem-solvers who set new norms in their fields of work. They are practical visionaries – practical in that they are highly attentive to the nuts and bolts of making things work, and visionary in that they often reframe the problem, build roles for others to participate, and cast a long term view for change at least at the national level.
