HiiL Justice Accelerator

The HiiL Justice Accelerator finds and supports the world's best justice entrepreneurs in order to create access to justice for all. We look for innovators particularly in Africa and the Middle East but also across the world. We locate justice entrepreneurs through our local partners and supporters.

We provide training to justice entrepreneurs through a series of local training events as well as the yearly Justice Entrepreneurship School in The Hague to teach them skills which they need most to manage and lead their innovations

Furthermore, by offering seed funding, as well as access to potential future follow-on funding, we fund justice entrepreneurs with the cash they need to grow their innovations. Finally we offer acceleration and business services to justice entrepreneurs to help get them on the right track to scaling their innovations.


Justice innovations

In general, the justice innovations we support fall into 3 categories:

  • Legal information, awareness and education 

  • Access to justice, legal services and dispute resolution
