In June 2016, our co-founder Neelam Chhiber paid a visit to the Ikea office at Sweden. In this video, she talks about Industree Foundation’s partnership with Ikea and why it is critical for social enterprises to partner with big businesses.
“Social enterprises around livelihood are actually rare. But those are the ones that need to be scaled. Which is about putting money in the hands of the poor. That’s why Industree’s relationship with Ikea is so critical. Unless social enterprises engage with big businesses, we are not going to see scale. We need the power of big business behind us.”
On the Industree Foundation-Ikea partnership, Neelam has this to say:
“This partnership could be a model. When it is projected to other companies, it could have a huge ripple effect. Because all global companies could do this.”
