About: Ashoka is a global association of social entrepreneurs. Since 1981, Ashoka has elected over 2,500 social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows, providing them with living stipends, professional support, and access to a global network of peers in 70 countries. Ashoka’s vision is to create a world in which “Everyone is a Changemaker.”
Intern responsibilities: IIP interns will work on two programs: Venture and Fellowship | Research and Mapping
- Venture and Fellowship - The intern for this program will conduct research, design processes to search and identify social entrepreneurs and nominators, participate in interviews, and map partnerships and visibility opportunities that would catalyze the work of the fellows.
- Research and Mapping - The intern will research and map entrepreneurial candidates for senior staff roles and nominators, design processes to strengthen the search process, participate in interviews, and map partnerships and visibility opportunities that would catalyze hiring growth at Ashoka.
Previous work responsibilities (in the words of a past IIP intern): First, I worked with multiple stakeholders from the profit and non-profit sectors, including Ashoka’s teams in Colombia and Brazil, as well as architectural firms, urban planners, and cement producers throughout India to gain an understanding of self-construction practices around the world and global barriers to entry in the market. Second, I conducted detailed analyses of five primary international cases and developed original models of market engagement within the Indian context. Third, I used this background to assess and segment the Indian self-construction market, valued at roughly 720 billion rupees, and presented my findings, as well as my stakeholder-based entry strategies, to the team. Lastly, I began to physically re-design and re-write marketing materials.
