Among the 370 total entries from over 69 countries, 11 finalists were selected by a panel of judges and the Changemakers community voted online to select the winners.

We've been thrilled to explore the business and entrepreneurship incubation space with a global company so instrumental to operational efficiency gains and smart growth like SAP," said Tim Scheu, senior change manager, Ashoka Changemakers, which has helped launch and supported over 3,000 leading social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows.
