Changemaker Finance

If we want to envision and drive deep transformations, a cultural shift needs to happen within the social innovation ecosystem. Shifts in practices and mindsets, from both social entrepreneurs and funders, will be determinant for this cultural shift to happen.

What is this experience all about? 

In our 4th edition, we aim to activate Ashoka’s community to collectively explore how new funding practices can support social entrepreneurs in creating an Everyone a Changemaker world. Through these conversations, we will equip our community with critical knowledge and tools about funding systems change, and provide a space for everyone to understand how to navigate and make the most of the offerings provided by Ashoka & partners.

Built on the insights and learnings surfaced by Ashoka over the past years, and partnering with leading organizations in the field, this webinar series will engage participants in a generative conversation about what it takes to:

  • Address challenges in a profoundly systemic way
  • Adopt practices and mindsets that allow for systems change-enabling funding approaches

Changemaker Finance Talks: A space where changemakers and funders can share insights and learnings in eye-level conversations about what it takes to adopt collaborative, inclusive and systemic mindsets and practices to both drive and fund deep, transformational change.
