HiiL Innovating Justice, together with the Global Agenda Council on Justice and the Ford Foundation, has embarked on a pioneering new endeavor to accelerate justice ventures in East and West Africa. The SME Empowerment Innovation Challenge is geared towards finding and strengthening new initiatives that can empower startups and SMEs. We want to support the best innovations and address regulatory hurdles and bureaucratic red tape faced by youth-led startups in East and West Africa.
The winners of the SME Empowerment Innovation Challenge can win up to $70,000 in seed funding.
The submission deadline is August 1st, followed by an Innovating Justice Boostcamp in Lagos in October with the 3 finalists will be chosen and taken to the Peace Palace, in the Hague, for the Innovating Justice Awards (3-4 December 2015).
