Ashoka Nordic Fellows

Ashoka Nordic Fellows

Ashoka Fellowship is a lifelong membership committed to shaping new patterns of social good. The Nordic Ashoka Fellows become part of Ashoka's global network of leading social entrepreneurs. We encourage our Nordic Fellows to take ownership of the network and partner with its members to co-create our vision:

to create an Everyone a Changemaker world.  

In addition to the global network, all Ashoka Nordic Fellows are part of the Ashoka Europe Fellowship Program. We also work actively within the Nordic region to ensure our community is connected with all our partners.


Ashoka Fellows are chosen based on their creativity, originality, entrepreneurial quality, ethical fibre, and social impact. The selection process is challenging, yet today we are proud to boast about a Fellows network including almost 3,800 of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, spread across 94 countries. In the Nordics we have 23 of them.

Get in touch, get inspired and read more about their challenges!

"A Changemaker is a person of any age who spots a social problem or injustice, does not walk by, but decides to take action for positive change."
