Ashoka Partner With Nestle to Launch CHF 500,000 Prize for Creating Shared Value
Nestlé and Ashoka have launched the Creating Shared Value Prize for 2018, with a prize package worth CHF 500,000, a pitch opportunity at the World Water Forum in Brazil in 2018, and a chance to be selected in the prestigious Ashoka Fellowship.

The Prize, relaunched in 2018 in partnership with Ashoka, aims to source, support and scale up leading innovation in the fields of water, nutrition and rural development.
“This union will foster powerful co-creation with social entrepreneurs, and deepen the social impact on the communities and beneficiaries they serve” Olivier Fruchaud, Director of Ashoka Switzerland
