The breeding ground

The breeding ground is a way of developing and inspiring legal innovation. This takes the form of a series of events or workshops around Law Hub themes. We invite students, focus groups and organisations to come together to discuss problems and ideate on possible solutions together. Where students are inspired and committed to continue developing ideas into a market-solution they are invited to the incubator.

Events & workshops

We see that both social partners and students are aware of problems that exist in society, but often do not know where to start. To encourage this and steer them in the right direction, we organise meetings from our incubator.

Our working method

The Human Centered Design method is the common thread here, because we believe that truly valuable solutions can be developed using this human-centred method. For instance, we start with the 'Empathize' phase, in which we encourage students (from universities throughout the Netherlands) to put themselves in the shoes of the end users by talking to them. On this basis, actual problems can be defined and possible solutions can be brainstormed.

Ready to take the next step?

Are you a student at a Dutch university, and have you already developed a start-up idea, but do you still lack the skills or the network to market it? Then apply for our Incubator programme! Here you will receive intensive, free coaching for one year, with a possible flow to our start-up financing.

Our (societal) partners

Currently, we are already actively collaborating with Gemeente Amsterdam, StartupAmsterdam, Raad voor de Rechtsbijstand, ProBono Connect and other universities, among others.

Are you working at an organisation looking to solve a legal problem, and would you like to join us? Then send an email to so we can help you facilitate a workshop with our students.
