This is a unique chance to be a part of the team executing a program at the intersection of IKEA and talented startups. You will get to meet and learn from amazing people, and get the best from both the Corporate and Startup world. It will be a wild ride - but we promise it will be fun!
Your role will be to support with a palette of tasks within mainly operations and events, and to some extend Marketing during the program. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Support all the planning and execution of several important events during the program - both big and small.
- Operational & administrative tasks - e.g. stakeholder engagement, design of satisfaction surveys, book meetings/restaurants/etc, informational material, buying needed things for the program, etc.
