On 13-14 October, JRR Executive Director Andras Vamos-Goldman participated in the kick-off of the Ashoka Visionary Program in Vienna, Austria. The Ashoka Visionary Program is a part-time executive program for decision-makers in the private and public sector, as well as social entrepreneurs.
The 9-month, part-time program includes modules on social entrepreneurship, business modeling, funding and scaling innovation, partnership, as well as stakeholder communication and leadership. For the program, Vamos-Goldman – an Ashoka Swiss Fellow – joins 21 other participants who are leaders in either the private or public sectors. JRR is grateful for the continued support of the Ashoka network, which provides start-up financing, professional support services to social enterprises, as well as connections to a global network of 3,500 other Fellows across the business and social sectors.
