Building ecosystems for social change

Anika Horn

Grab my starter kit for ecosystem builders!

I help entrepreneurship practitioners become holistic ecosystem builders.

A rising tide lifts all boats. We can only drive meaningful, lasting change if we take a systems approach and facilitate the flow of information and resources within these systems.

At Social Venturers, you’ll find the insights, resources and a global network of peers to build your mindset and skills as an effective ecosystem builder (professional excellence) without losing sight of yourself (personal mastery).

This is a martyr-free zone.
