African Startups Invited to Apply for Justice Accelerator

    Do you have a product, service or prototype that resolves crime, family, land, neighbours, employment justice issues in East Africa and have no or only a few users or customers? Do you have a team and a revenue model that is yet to be validated? 

    The Justice Innovation Circles Incubation Program is looking for you.

    The program seeks early-stage innovative businesses in East Africa from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Burundi that have a product, prototype or service solving a justice problem with few customers or users, and have the plans and ambition to get their product, service or prototype to the market and grow their users or customer base. 

    The program is curated for justice innovators who only have a minimal viable product or prototype and no real traction. That is, the product is still not in the hands of users and the main objective is to push the product to the market. 

    It is a good fit for early-stage startups with promising break-through innovations seek to create better

    –    working conditions with their employer

    –          separation terms with their spouse

    –          protection against theft, fraud and violence

    –          arrangements about noise, damages and property access with their neighbour

    –          housing maintenance and rent conditions with their landlord

    –          agreements on ownership, registration and use of land

    –          contracts, fraud protection and compliance for their small business.

    The Justice Innovation Circles will select the most promising innovations have a product, prototype or a service that solves a justice problem but has minimal or no traction. Between the 24th of August and the 24th of September 2021 justice startups can apply to join the incubation program via https://ea.hiil.org/programme/justice-innovation-circles/       

    Applications for the 2021 Justice Innovation Circles will close on 24th September 2021 at 23:59 Eastern African Time.
