IKEA Social Entrepreneurship in collaboration with New Ventures and IKEA Mexico is launching the Mexico Accelerator Programme 2021. We’re looking to accelerate 10 enterprises that have a social or environmental impact through a product, service or job creation. Interested enterprises are welcome to apply here.
IKEA Social Entrepreneurship and New Ventures believes that entrepreneurship and innovation are the necessary duo to transform any environment, and that includes generating and developing new opportunities that positively affect the community and contribute to the improvement of everyday life.
Therefore, in this second edition, we aim to support enterprises based in Mexico that are committed to bringing about change in their environment through the best social, environmental or labour practices. The programme will focus on scalable projects that generate equitable and quality employment opportunities.
Through this accelerator, IKEA Social Entrepreneurship in collaboration with IKEA Mexico and New Ventures will support 10 social enterprises to build capacity and strengthen their business model, fostering a sense of ownership and empowerment to gain greater control over their own future development. IKEA Mexico will also be providing mentoring and tools to reinforce their financial skills.
Applications are open, so do not hesitate to apply here.
