The Industrial Revolution in the UK had led to the division of society into two halves, namely business and social sector.While business sector grewrapidly, the other half of the society lagged behind. However, after the establishment ofAshoka in 1980 the social sector began to develop. Bill Drayton (Drayton), the founder ofAshoka: Innovators for the public, has contributedmainly to the development of the social sector. The enterprise that he founded is responsible for bringing in major social reforms in various countries. Social entrepreneurs, who are called ‘fellows’ in Ashoka, are the people behind this development. These entrepreneurs are financially and professionally supported by the enterprise.
