In partnership with TOMS shoes and social entrepreneur Sara Nuru, Ashoka is launching a very special edition ChangemakerXchange on ‘Business for Purpose’, for which we are looking for the most disruptive and creative young social entrepreneurs with social business models from across Europe and beyond.
ChangemakerXchange is a global collaborative community for over 600 of the world’s top young changemakers to connect, share and develop cross-border collaborations.
ChangemakerXchange will bring this group together in a unique collaborative summit format close to Berlin from May 9th-13th, after which they will get the chance to become part of a global community of innovators.
