New Silk Roads is your guide to seeing the world diferently, uncovering opportunities yet to be imagined, and building what is into what can be. Together, we create contemporary maps to navigate towards new horizons.


New Silk Roads was founded in 2009 by a collective of international thinkers and doers to offer fundraising, strategic advice and project management to social enterprises and organisations around the world. Our work is guided by the values of the silk roads of the past: trust, connectedness and international solidarity. Our partners are international civil society organisations, social enterprises, private foundations, donor agencies, investors and creative agencies. Together, we create contemporary maps to navigate towards new horizons.

Since 2009 we have implemented various projects, ranging from fellowships, trade missions, business coaching to publications. We have raised funding for our partners from international donors such as the European Union, USAID, Sida, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands and the Swedish Institute.
