Today was the third and last day of the Dela Summit. The day was a time for the Social Entrepreneurs to reflect and get to know each other better. Together we have experienced two fun and hectic days, so therefore today was a chance for all to take a step back, and for the first time since we got here, we went outside the IKEA Head Office.

As one door closes, another opens. Today, the Dela Accelerator went from the strategy phase to the implementation phase. The IKEA Strategy Advisors handed over the work to the IKEA Implementation Advisors, and the work continues between them and the Social Entrepreneurs. 

We are up and running! Today has been a hectic and super exciting day. We have met many interesting and inspiring people. We started the day with a welcome meeting where Torbjörn Lööf, CEO of Inter IKEA Group, Åsa Skogström Feldt, Director of IKEA Social Entrepreneurship and Marie Ringler, Director of Ashoka Europe, spoke about the cooperation.

Linnéa and Kim here!

We are writing this post because we have gotten the opportunity to participate in the Dela Summit in Delft. From 24-26 October 2019 the Dela Summit will take place in Delft, The Netherlands. We will join the Summit and share everything with you. We will post one blog post a day during the Summit and share a video containing our experience of the journey.
