Innovating Justice Boostcamp

Innovating Justice Boostcamp

The Innovating Justice Boostcamp is a regional event to empower local justice entrepreneurs to improve their innovations. The Innovating Justice Boostcamp is geared towards finding solutions and encouraging the implementation of initiatives that can empower justice innovations in specific settings.

On 29 October 2015, the Innovating Justice Accelerator hosted an Innovating Justice Boostcamp in Lagos. Speakers shared their insights with the guests at the event. In addition, incubation sessions boosted the progress of the innovators where they received coaching and pitched their innovations. Six innovators pitched at the Boostcamp - three winners of the online campaign and three wildcard nominations of the SME Empowerment Innovation Challenge. The six innovators were hosted in the same accommodation so that they could work together, exchange insightful experiences and share opportunities during the duration of their stay.

HiiL and an expert jury evaluated the three most promising innovations based on the online campaign, the outcomes of the Boostcamp and the innovations' inherent strenghts. The Innovating Justice Boostcamp Lagos was geared towards finding solutions and encouraging the implementation of initiatives that can empower startups and SMEs, specifically innovations that address regulatory hurdles and bureaucratic red tape faced by youth-led startups across Africa.
