#About the organizer: Ashoka is the global non-profit organisation that has developed the field of “social entrepreneurship” since 1980 and the first and largest community of system-changing social entrepreneurs (aka Ashoka Fellows). We find and support entrepreneurial talents and system-changing ideas that solve social problems, and then scale their impact. Our vision: a world in which everyone is a changemaker. The Austrian branch has been active since 2011.

About the program (that we're kicking off for the 8th time in Central & Eastern Europe): The Ashoka Visionary Program is a pioneering, part-time leadership program for social entrepreneurs, as well as professionals and leaders from business, NGOs, philanthropic and public sectors from all over the world. Since 2015, we've been sharing our exclusive know-how from 40+ years of practice and close to 4,000 fellows from across the world. And creating a space for changemakers to connect and create. Topics include social entrepreneurship, systems change, new forms of leadership, co-creation, business modelling and more. In short, everything you need to drive your social entreprise! More info:
