IKEA Glue Programme | 2023

Calling out all innovators and entrepreneurs who are working in the field of biobased glues! We partnered with IKEA to track down sustainable glue options that will be kind to future generations.

Are you an entrepreneur or innovator exploring the potential of biobased board adhesives?

We’ve teamed up with IKEA to find the best and brightest minds to help them achieve their bold goal of reducing fossil-based glue use by 40% and greenhouse gas emissions from glue by 30% by FY30. By switching to bio-based alternatives and reducing fossil-based glue, IKEA is taking a major step towards achieving its goal. This is your chance to collaborate with a global leader in sustainable practices. Apply for the IKEA Glue Programme 2023 and become a pioneer in the biobased adhesives field.

Apply if you

  1. Are innovating in the area of bio-based glue:
  • Crosslinkers with biobased feedstock for board adhesives
  • Biobased systems for board adhesives
  • Biobased solutions for furniture adhesives
  1. Have a proven business model.
  2. Are a legally registered business.
  3. Have a proficient level of English.

The Process

Rather than hosting a pitch or demo day, IKEA aims to delve deeper into your innovative approach and application. How? By gaining insights into your thought process and engaging in 1:1 conversations.
