lokalt hero NESST


IKEA Social Entrepreneurship along with NESsT have joined forces in two unique three-year partnerships to support 24 social enterprises from a variety of sectors such as sustainable agriculture, job inclusion, circular economy, and sustainability working across Latin America and Poland and Romania.

With the ambition of improving the lives of 2,700 marginalised and excluded people across these regions, the co-created and tailor-made three-year programmes have been designed alongside IKEA regional representatives. The accelerators provide social entrepreneurs with hands-on guidance from IKEA co-workers and NESsT advisors to support them with their business scale-up plans so they can create jobs, reach underserved communities and contribute to inclusive and sustainable futures for people who need it most in Latin America, Poland and Romania.
