The Skoll Foundation seeks to accelerate entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world’s most pressing problems by uniting social entrepreneurs with essential partners in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage, and large-scale social change.

At the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship delegates represent nearly 65 countries and participate in a range of interactive events in which they can openly share, collaborate, innovate, and, ultimately, advance social entrepreneurship. We attend each year, have presented at past events and are part of the wider Skoll community.

An initiative of the Aspen Institute, the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) is a global network of organisations, of which we are part of, that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets. ANDE members provide critical financial, educational, and business support services to small and growing businesses (SGBs) based on the conviction that SGBs will create jobs, stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and social benefits.
