After a successful first edition, the Ministry of Justice and Security is organising a new edition of its Startup in Residence Programme (SiR). Startups can register for eleven, very varied, societal challenges. The ministry is looking for innovative solutions in the field of, among other things, criminal investigation, crime prevention, child abuse online, data and young people.
The Startup in Residence programme is an innovative co-working programme which challenges startups to find solutions to societal issues. A maximum of three startups per challenge are given the chance to present their idea to a jury. The winners (one per challenge) will be invited to enter the Startup in Residence programme. They will, furthermore, be provided with development budget and a customized training and guidance programme.
After five months of intensive collaboration between startup and the Ministry of Justice and Security, the programme will end with a Demo Day. On this festive day the startups will present a working MVP/prototype to the challenge owners, potential buyers and the Justice and Security network.
Does your startup have the solution for one or more challenges? You can register until 8 November 2018.
Meetup 25 October
