Ashoka founder Bill Drayton in Newsweek

Bill Drayton recently offered his views in Newsweek article on the benefits modern technology has to offer for social entrepeneurs. In the article, Bill points out the uses Web 2.0 can have for increasingly effective innovation. He links the open nature of most virtual media nowadays to the bottom-up, collaborative and innovative nature of a social entrepreneur’s plan for change. A clear example of the symbiosis these two fields can lead to is Ashoka’s Changemakers platform, whose ‘open-sourcing of social solutions’ allows anyone to online enter creative ideas for development. Since Ashoka’s start nearly 30 years ago, the limits to social entrepreneurship seem to be endless.
