Sauti has been selected to participate in the semi-final stage of the prestigious Hill Innovative Justice Accelerator award for the most promising justice innovation of the year 2016 between 15 and 29 September 2016! These events will highlight the semi-finalists for the 2016 SME Empowerment- and Family Justice Challenge.
Each year, the most promising justice entrepreneurs compete for the prestigious Innovating Justice Awards. The awards are granted to the entrepreneurs with the most promising innovations, as selected by an international expert jury during the Annual Innovating Justice Forum.
The Innovating Justice Forum is an international event that discusses and supports innovative ways of approaching justice worldwide.
The justice innovators pitch their innovation to an international audience, gain international recognition, and have the opportunity to win seed investments.
This year, up to 160,000 EUR will be split between the winners of the awards. Winners of the Innovating Justice Awards also receive acceleration support with access to funding, networks and expert advice.
The Forum includes pitches by selected justice entrepreneurs, engaging speeches by experts and justice leaders, interactive working sessions and inspiring panel sessions on various topics related to justice innovation.
Sauti will now attend and pitch at a local Boostcamp in Nairobi. The pitches will be conducted between 15 and 29 September 2016! These events will highlight the semi-finalists for the 2016 SME Empowerment- and Family Justice Challenge. Some of the semi-finalists will crowdfund on www.innovatingjustice.com starting on October 1.
The HiiL Justice Accelerator team will select up to 10 innovations by October 20 who will move on to the final round and pitch in The Hague in December for an Innovating Justice Award.
