Ashoka: Innovators for the Public

Cause Overview

Social entrepreneurs are visionaries with innovative solutions to society's most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering unprecedented ideas for change. A true social entrepreneur is a visionary who does not just build a new school or clinic, but rather innovates an approach that changes the entire education or medical system. Rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, they find what is not working and solve the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution and persuading entire societies to take new leaps. Quite simply, they are solution-minded pragmatists who are not afraid to tackle some of the world's biggest problems.

Investing in leading social entrepreneurs is one of the most highly leveraged approaches to social change. With an idea that has yielded extraordinary results, social entrepreneurs pioneer large-scale solutions that go beyond affecting a local community -- but rather impact change on a global scale. Nothing is more powerful than a new idea in the hands of a leading social entrepreneur. And, nothing can be more effective in ensuring a project's long-term success than support and investment of a social entrepreneur's project at a critical moment.
