A collaboration between Ashoka, Nordea and Accenture
The Changemakers Accelerator supports innovative Nordic Social Entrepreneurs working towards the biggest social challenges the Nordics face today, within the fields of climate action and circularity.
The purpose of the program is to support the participants to create systems change strategies and to connect them to a community of committed stakeholders who can contribute to maximise the impact of their solutions.
Nine social entrepreneurs with the potential to create a systemic change, has been identified as potential game changers.
The Nordic region shares many commonalities, such as strong welfare states and an environment known for fostering innovation, as well as similar societal challenges in areas such as integration, climate change, education, etc.
In order to tackle these challenges, the region needs more social innovation, which often starts at the hands of a Social Entrepreneur. To create more impact and allow social innovation to spread, we need to enable the ecosystem and support Nordic social entrepreneurs.
“Today, we face many challenges and I believe that we need impact entrepreneurs to solve societal issues. But they can’t succeed alone. That is why we have engaged with Ashoka and Accenture. We are partnering up to accelerate entrepreneurship in the Nordics”.
