Create a network of resources and support.
Strategic partnerships with corporations, governments and organizations translate into new types of resources and credibility for a citizen sector organization. Leveraging networks, connections, and the influential power of a partner can propel a social mission forward and entrench values into another organizational structure—not to mention create value for both constituents.
Many organizations are bridging the gap between the private and public sector by identifying a hybrid value chain and taking action. Learn how you can too. Click here to search for more organizations that leverage partnerships effectively. Home
Ashoka is the global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs—men and women with system changing solutions for the world’s most urgent social problems. Since 1981, Ashoka has elected over 1,800 leading social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows, providing them with living stipends, professional support, and access to a global network of peers in more than 60 countries.
In an effort to provide more resources to the Ashoka community and systemically change the sector, Ashoka created the Citizen Base Initiative (CBI) in 1997. Working in tandem with other Ashoka programs, CBI helps build the infrastructure for a vibrant citizen sector, led by social entrepreneurs.
