Key Lessons on Scaling from Ashoka Globalizers

As perfectionists, social entrepreneurs often never feel completely ready to scale. The important thing is to stop thinking, “Why scale?” and shift to a mindset of, “Why not scale?” The Ashoka Globalizers in these videos discuss important questions to keep in mind when preparing to scale.

Framework on Scaling Social Impact

A step by step guide leading Social Entrepreneurs and their consultants through the journey of scaling. From making the initial decision through to implementation.




C&A Foundation believes that fashion can act as a strong force for positive change, and as  a driver of economic growth. Through financial support, sharing of expertise and providing access to a network of specialists, the foundation focuses on strengthening platforms, NGOs and other changemakers so that they can transform the apparel industry and make fashion a force of good. 

C&A Foundation and Ashoka have partnered to launch Fabric of Change: a global initiative to support support innovators for a fair and sustainable apparel industry. This three-year initiative is cultivating social entrepreneurs and their solutions to advance a shared vision of fashion as a force for good.


The Fabric of Change Globalizer aims to accelerate the impact of these selected social entrepreneurs by providing the tools and support to strategically and rapidly scale their impact in order to achieve systemic change. 


These social entrepreneurs focus on tackling  complex challenges s across the apparel value chain  by innovating solutions to change the underlying patterns  causing these problems in the first place.

The Globalizer provides them with a tailored and strategic process needed to accelerate the impact of their innovations. Each social entrepreneur is matched with global business leaders and consultants who help them develop their scale strategy during a 3-month advisory period. This process then culminates with the Globalizer Summit being held in Bangalore, in May 2017.
