Replication & Transfer

“The replication module has been a true "Eureka effect" that not only led to a complete rethinking of our development strategy but also allowed us to align our team on our major objectives for the next few years. Thank you all for your help in this troubled time.”

Replication & Transfer module participant

What is this experience all about?

This online co-learning journey is all about the process of replicating and transferring solutions of social enterprises to new regions and countries. Our team has been working with close to 100 social entrepreneurs to support them in developing a solid replication & transfer strategy and model. Together with experienced Ashoka Fellows, experts and coaches we will guide you through this strategic process. 

A replication & transfer model comprises a rationale (WHY), a replicable solution (WHAT), a method to replicate your solution (HOW), your partner profile and partnership journey (WHO), an assessment of new regions and countries (WHERE), and a strategy for introducing your solution to a new context (and adapting it). 

Furthermore, the module will explore how replication strategies connect to system change strategies and how they can be designed with an "Everyone A Changemaker" vision in mind.
