Ashoka Twin Cities is a local chapter of Ashoka, a global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs — over 3,000 men and women with system-changing solutions for the world’s most urgent social problems. Ashoka sources the best social innovations, mobilizes hundreds of thousands of people to create change and enables businesses, the media, policy makers and "changemakers" to work together to create global impact. Drawing from our global platform, Ashoka Twin Cities focuses on supporting social innovation and developing the skills of changemaking at a local level.

Since starting an office in Minneapolis, our work has focused on supporting young people age 12 to 20 to launch and lead their first social venture, sourcing innovations through open-source online competitions, hosting community events, and identifying and selecting leading social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows. We are also crossing sectors to collaborate and build unique partnerships with colleges, universities and businesses.
