    Expanding a supply chain to help the neediest find work.

    Ikea relies on more than 1,000 suppliers to help produce its globally popular furniture. Its social entrepreneurs initiative widens that circle to include the disadvantaged. The company is working with an NGO in Jordan that plans to employ about 200 Syrian refugees to produce goods like textiles and rugs. Other initiative projects employ women entrepreneurs in India and female immigrants in Sweden.
