June 02, 2021
The challenges facing today’s world won’t be solved alone. They require courageous innovators and builders who prioritize people and planet over profit, and look to partnership as an essential tool to elevate impact. For the second year, Acumen Academy and IKEA Social Entrepreneurship are partnering to launch the Acumen-IKEA East Africa Accelerator — a program offering hands-on guidance to entrepreneurs driving social change. Led by IKEA’s global team of co-worker coaches, this new cohort will convene to confront the most pressing challenges facing their communities in the areas of education, workforce development, health, agriculture, and more.
