What is this module all about?

We invite you to join the 3rd edition of our Replication & Transfer module. This module 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). 

The offer:
The whole module consists of different online learning experiences. For a powerful learning effect, we need participants to be committed to join all activities of the Replication & Transfer model. 
We will start with an online introduction webinar that will introduce you to replication & transfer (models, challenges, benchmarks) and guidelines on how to develop your transfer strategy & model. After this first introduction you will dive deeper through an online case clinic, an online workshop and online mentoring sessions. The module will be concluded by a final pitch and feedback session.
All parts of this module will be facilitated by experienced Ashoka Fellows, Ashoka Staff and experts in the field.
Additional peer-to-peer feedback and mentoring will be stimulated throughout the process.
