Event description


HiiL is delighted to invite you to the Innovating Justice Boostcamp taking place in Johannesburg on the 13th of October 2017! This event will highlight this year’s semi-finalists from the HiiL Innovating Justice Challenge.

These justice start-ups were carefully selected from more than 600 candidates from all over globe. During the Boostcamp, the entrepreneurs will pitch their justice innovation, after which the best innovation will be selected by a jury composed of experts in law, business, and justice. The best innovation, decided by the jury, will receive 5000 EUR (±75000 ZAR) and enter the HiiL Justice Accelerator's acceleration track.

The Innovating Justice Boostcamp will have keynote addresses followed by pitches and interactive working sessions that bring together the different worlds of entrepreneurship, investment, civil society, law and justice, and academia.
