Solve the Big Problems

IKEA Bootcamp is about collaborating and co-building with startups. We are looking for startups to help us solve the IKEA ‘Big Problems’ around being truly affordable for the many people, reaching and interacting with the many, and enabling a positive impact on the planet, people and society.

Co-create in our Democratic Design center

If you are a startup working on solving the Big Problems, we want to invite you to apply for the IKEA Bootcamp program. If your team are one of the ten selected startups, you will spend three months in Sweden, at the heart of the IKEA Range & Supply Democratic Design center, working together with IKEA and Rainmaking to accelerate your startup.

We will support your startup

You will get access to IKEA’s prototype shop, test labs & innovation development, as well as the expertise and knowledge within IKEA Range & Supply. You will also be awarded a 20,000 EUR grant to spend on developing your product & startup, and free co-working space & housing during the program. You will get a senior global IKEA business leader as mentor as well as access to tailored mentorship & advice from both IKEA and Rainmaking’s global network of serial entrepreneurs and experts.

If your startup is working to solve one of the Big Problems outside of the listed fields, please get in touch.
