From business accelerators based and designed specifically for the Latin American region to finance education targeting youth and young adults, Ashoka innovations encompass a wide variety of industries. And that makes sense, of course, since Ashoka: Innovators for the Public calls itself the "largest network of social entrepreneurs" in the world with its 3,000 fellows in about 70 countries.
This list of Ashoka innovations follow along the mission and insight of American social entrepreneur Bill Drayton, who founded the global non-profit organization in 1980 and continues to act as the CEO. There's no doubt that even if you're simply a little bit involved in the social enterprise and social business worlds, that you've come across a few current or former Ashoka fellows, as they tend to head various organizations.
