We are currently running the sixth edition of the accelerator program.

We’re thrilled that you want to apply to our accelerator program for social entrepreneurs at Campus Helsingborg! Please fill in the form which you can find below by clicking on “apply”.

Please read our list of criteria before applying. The next program starts in September 2018, to which the deadline of your application is the 5th of August. Our selection is based on the degree to which you satisfy of our stated criteria and our confidence in you, your organisation and idea. We will get back to you after the application deadline, where successful applicants will be booked for an interview. Please note that we do not give individual feedback to each applicant or application.

During the application process, you may receive additional questions that require answering. These questions may range from ‘the degree to which you want to see your idea come to fruition’ to ‘your level of availability to be on site in Helsingborg each week’.

Between seven and ten entrepreneurs participate in each program and we strive to have a wide range and diversity both in participants and social issues addressed.

Societal challenges seeking solutions

SoPact works closely with  the administrations that are represented in the project’s steering committee. These are Social Administration, School and Recreation Administration, Care and Welfare Management and City Management.

Together with SoPact, these administrations have defined a number of societal challenges where it would be particularly, but not exclusively,  interesting to bring in possible solutions from the accelerator program’s social entrepreneurs. The identified social challenges are: 

  • Digital exclusion among the elderly and disabled.
  • Personal and competence management of digital skills in healthcare, school and leisure and social services.
  • Socially sustainable housing solutions linked to homelessness, recruitment of family homes and management of unaccompanied children and newly arrived migrant and refugee families.

SoPact also encourages those applicants who can contribute to Vision 2035 and Helsingborg as the creative, vibrant, common, global and balanced city for people and businesses.

Please note that the program is targeting social entrepreneurs throughout Skåne, without any requirement for ongoing operations in Helsingborg.

We look forward to your application!
