COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs

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.

The Alliance was co-initiated by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, Ashoka, Catalyst 2030, GHR Foundation, the Skoll Foundation, and Yunus Social Business

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
