HiiL Justice Entrepreneurship School 2024

The Justice Entrepreneurship School is HiiL’s flagship incubation programme that supports early-stage entrepreneurs that are preventing or resolving pressing justice needs in their communities.

The programme is catered to startups in the incubation stage, where there is a Minimal Viable Product or Service, with little traction and runs for a period of 7 weeks. Focused on delivering high-quality action learning, the programme focuses on business modelling, storytelling, pitching and justice design thinking. This year the programme is focused in supporting innovative early stage startups in Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi.

During the incubation programme, the startups will work on getting their product into the hands of users as fast as possible, aggressively and consistently obtain their feedback, and refine the MVP accordingly. This includes getting enough users and running tests on them.


The Justice Entrepreneurship School  offers a six-week-long programme that provides justice startups with:

  • A three day residential boot camp delivered by industry specialists: business growth, team & leadership, design thinking, and much more.
  • 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.
  • A chance to win non equity grant funding at the end of the programme during the Justice Innovation Circle demo day.
