About the Dela programme

The Dela programme comprises of the Dela Accelerator and New Fellows Selection. By supporting innovative ideas, the Dela Accelerator enables established Social Entrepreneurs to continue developing their strategies with the goal to scale impact. 

Through New Fellows Selection, we identify social entrepreneurs in every corner of the world, whose system-changing innovations solve deep-rooted social problems. After a rigorous selection process, they are invited into the Ashoka Fellowship – providing early stage financial support and a lifetime membership into an expansive network of peers and partners – enabling them to achieve their vision and have even greater impact.

This global programme offers a unique Fellowship experience based on Ashoka’s and IKEA’s expertise and networks.
