The second edition of the Dela programme features an Accelerator for 12 selected social entrepreneurs. The Accelerator will focus on enhancing the system change strategies of the social entrepreneurs and identifying the organisational milestones required to attain them. With the support of Ashoka, IKEA co-workers and Thought Partners from Microsoft, they will present their new strategies to a group of hand-picked top-level executives who will challenge their assumptions and refine their strategies.
The social entrepreneurs will also get the option to join a Scoping and Experimentation phase. This will see them paired with IKEA and Microsoft ‘Experimenting Partners’ & experts to further test the feasibility, viability and desirability of their ideas. The outcome could see the first steps towards implementation and realisation.
