The Innovating Justice Challenge began in 2011 as the only accelerator worldwide dedicated to justice and SDG16. Since then, it has successfully funded, trained, and scaled over 110 startups globally. Its major focus is on innovative entrepreneurs who are preventing or resolving pressing justice problems; who are people or user-centred; rather than system-centred and reaching millions of people.
