Ashoka Support Network

ASN members come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, but all of them share our belief that entrepreneurs are the primary engine for economic, environmental and social development. They share their expertise, knowledge and networks in order to scale or deepen the impact of Fellows’ work. This might involve assisting a Fellow to create a business plan, structure a social finance deal, or make a senior connection at a relevant company.
