Ashoka Future Forum Supports Social Entrepreneurs (WATCH LIVE)

As part of its stated mission, Ashoka "invests in people." Their programs seek to catalyze and inspire young entrepreneurs to fulfill their world-changing ideas. They envision a world where everyone is "a changemaker."

Their latest event seeks to make this a reality. On Tuesday, April 6, Ashoka is hosting a "Future Forum," a gathering of business leaders, government officials and social innovators with the goal of planning a collaborative entrepreneurial effort to make positive change around the globe.

Additionally, Ashoka will announce that The Brin Wojcicki Foundation has donated $1 million to Ashoka to promote a continuation of their social innovation projects.

"The world needs more social innovations. That is why we want to get more people involved with Ashoka. I think the more people know about Ashoka the more they are inspired to make a difference in their own lives," says Anne Wojcicki.

You can follow along with the Ashoka Future Forum via the Twitter hashtag #AshokaFF or watch a 30-minute segment of the conference LIVE from 2:00-2:30 p.m. ET below:
