Join the Ashoka Support Network


The Ashoka Support Network (ASN) is a global community of successful leaders in their own fields - men and women with a passion for creative and entrepreneurial change - who share Ashoka’s understanding that entrepreneurs are the primary engines for economic and social development. The Ashoka Support Network envisions a world where there will be no more walls between the citizen sector and any other sector. A world where leaders from all fields and social entrepreneurs work together to solve society’s most pressing social problems.


A global community of successful business people focused on changing the world. This community believes that entrepreneurs are the primary engine for economic and social change. ASN members engage with Ashoka by committing their time and resources to support the work of Ashoka’s Leading Social Entrepreneurs.They have exclusive access to Ashoka Fellows, with ample opportunity to meet these phenomenal social leaders and engage with their work. The Ashoka Support Network is the only platform for connecting with the highest quality social entrepreneurs in the world.


ASN members are business entrepreneurs, top executives, investment bankers, venture capitalists, and consultants. Their advice and participation are integral to the success of our Ashoka Fellows and the organization as a whole. ASN members thrive on challenges and recognize that no social solution will reach its fullest potential without the support of leaders from other sectors. They want to continue with their careers while playing a more significant role in changing the world.



Ashoka Support Network Members join Ashoka Fellows for problem-solving sessions to tackle their immediate pressing challenges; engage with Fellows in personal meetings, and serve on informal advisory boards for broader strategic decision-making. Ashoka offers ASN members an exclusive portfolio of exciting engagement opportunities. Members participate in these opportunities based on their unique interests, capacity and skill-sets.
