A Demo Day at the forum will feature pitches from seventeen startups from Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, and Tunisia.
These startups, which are a part of HiiL's 2023 Justice Accelerator program, are up for the €20,000, €15,000, and €5,000 Innovating Justice Award. A distinguished jury from the MENA region, West Africa, and East Africa will select the winners.
