collective intelligence that selects & finances social projects
every single day ordinary people do extraordary things
Drayton (founder of Ashoka) identifies four levels of social change: direct service, scaling up, pattern change, and framework change. While he sees great potential in a broad movement of entrepreneurs dedicating their lives to social impact, his highest admiration is reserved for those moving beyond incremental change to framework change. This means the disruption of an entire system; not just to reconfigure existing patterns, but obliterating them entirely, replacing old models with new operating systems.The advice for emerging social entrepreneurs? Dig deeper, look further upstream, and aim big. Utter transformation is possible and necessary. Set your sights high.
