"Making more health" is a long-term initiative with the goal to improve health in communities around the world by identifying and supporting the most promising solutions to challenging health problems.
Since 2010, Boehringer Ingelheim and the non-governmental organisation Ashoka are working together in a global partnership. Ashoka is the largest network of social entrepreneurs worldwide, one of the most known enablers for people dedicated to changing the world.
"Making more health" is the ambition to deliver new health care models – prevention, diagnosis and treatment – to individuals and society.
"Making more health" is about bringing together business and social knowledge. Together with our partner Ashoka we engage actively in single social entrepreneurship projects. Ashoka displays competence in creating change and comes with the network and know-how to identify and to advance social innovators. This way of collaboration forms a win-win situation for everyone: For our fellows, for Ashoka and Boehringer Ingelheim.
Boehringer Ingelheim is competent in the healthcare and business sectors. We can provide the social entrepreneurs with a great deal of experience in professional project management. Furthermore, we support the entrepreneurs with our skills, experience, and network.
We would hereby like to achieve a change in the healthcare system. And we would like to give something to society, something that cannot be measured and solved monetarily.
