HiiL, in partnership with the Ford Foundation, announces the Innovating Justice Boostcamp. This event will showcase this year’s semi-finalists for the HiiL SME Empowerment – and Family Justice Challenges.
The justice startups were carefully selected from more than 400 candidates all over Africa. During the boostcamp, the entrepreneurs will pitch their justice innovation, after which the best will be selected and reviewed by a jury.
During the boostcamp, the best innovations will be selected and reviewed by a jury, who will advise the selection of finalists who will pitch for the Innovating Justice Awards and acceleration funding worth over € 160,000!
The Innovating Justice Boostcamp will have key-note addresses followed by pitches, panel discussions and interactive working sessions that bring together the different worlds of entrepreneurs, investors, civil society, justice professionals and academia.
