Entrepreneurship School

Are you an early-stage justice entrepreneur interested in training and funding? Apply for the Justice Entrepreneurship School before 30 June 2022 

The HiiL Innovation Hub, a social enterprise dedicated to supporting justice entrepreneurs in East Africa, invites applicants for the Justice Entrepreneurship School incubation programme. The programme supports early-stage entrepreneurs preventing or resolving pressing justice needs in their communities. Entrepreneurs will be offered high-quality action learning through the program on business modelling, storytelling, pitching, and justice design thinking. 

The programme is suitable for start-up entrepreneurs who: 

  • Have a solution that meets the needs of those who struggle to access adequate, easy-to-understand, affordable, and accessible means to prevent or resolve their justice problems 
  • Have a basic product or service, that is, an existing prototype or minimal viable problem 
  • Have no traction; that is, the product is still not in the hand of users, or it’s only in the hands of a small number of early adopter users, where we still do not see enough evidence that this product or business can work 
  • Led by a team of 2 or 3 committed and passionate co-founders who shares a drive for justice and impact 

Successful applicants to the programme will benefit from the following: 

  • A one-week residential boot camp delivered by industry specialists on topics such as business growth, team & leadership, design thinking  
  • Coaching sessions and mentorship on topics of your choice 
  • Access to HiiL’s regional network of justice leaders, legal tech organisations, and top-level researchers 
  • Certification and a learning platform for self-service 
  • Chance to win up to €1000 at the end of the programme during the Justice Innovation Circle demo day
