The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. We go further, and have a common strategic direction for the full IKEA ecosystem to be affordable, sustainable and accessible. It’s a vision and strategy that we try to live up to in many ways, one of them by using our experience to create long-lasting, positive change for those who need it most.
IKEA Social Entrepreneurship looks to create greater opportunities for people who are vulnerable and marginalised, working with and supporting over 160 social entrepreneurs who are creating a more equal, sustainable and inclusive society.
By supporting, collaborating and doing business with social entrepreneurs, we can play a part in transforming communities into places that are full of opportunities for many generations to come.
We at IKEA Social Entrepreneurship are excited to be collaborating with One Young World to offer scholarships to inspiring young social entrepreneurs to attend this year’s One Young World Summit 2023 in Belfast, UK.
This scholarship is intended for social entrepreneurs working towards a sustainable future where everyone is seen and heard – challenging the root causes of poverty, exclusion, and inequality.
