IKEA Social Entrepreneurship and NESsT are on the lookout for social enterprises in Poland and Romania to join our newly launched accelerator. Interested enterprises can apply here.
The three-year, co-created accelerator programme will support 10 social entrepreneurs interested in scaling their impact. With tailor-made support and financing from NESsT and IKEA Social Entrepreneurship, it will focus on enterprises that have a social and environmental impact. Selection will be given to those that lack financing options and that can most benefit from the programme’s advisory and mentoring services.
Our goal with this accelerator is to ensure the employment of 1,200 vulnerable and excluded communities in the region. These include youth, at-risk women, ethnic minorities, migrants and refugees, smallholder farmers, and people with different abilities to access better job opportunities and improve their income.
Applications are open until the 3rd of May, 2021, but will be accepted on a rolling basis, so do not hesitate to apply which you can do here.
