The COVID Response Alliance is an unprecedented collaboration between 86 global leaders in social entrepreneurship, representing 100,000 social entrepreneurs and impacting the lives of over 2 billion people.
Unique in its diversity with representation across support organizations, corporations, investors, funders, government institutions, academics, and media, it envisions a world where social entrepreneurs thrive as first responders to the COVID-19 crisis and as pioneers of an inclusive, green, and resilient society and economic system.
Now, more than ever, we need to come together to lay the groundwork for an inclusive recovery. We are committed to stand by our different partners including social entrepreneurs. This is a critical way for us to contribute, learn, innovate and scale for positive impact on people, planet and society. We are in this together.—Jon Abrahamsson Ring, CEO Inter IKEA Group

Through our COVID Action Agenda, Alliance members call on their peers to stand by social entrepreneurs during and through the crisis. Pledge your support and take the actions that are right for you.
Periods of crisis can drive cooperation and solidarity and give rise to new and better ways of doing things. Our 2021 Roadmap lists over 20 projects that members of the Alliance are driving. Together.
Each of our Alliance members is working hard to help social entrepreneurs connect to the resources they need to succeed. A list of relevant COVID resource platforms and support resources is updated regularly.
