Within the Market Impact programme, we support entrepreneurial students and researchers to market and finance innovative ideas. In doing so, we invest in four startups every year, with a total cohort of eight startups or NGOs per year. As these companies are set up by young entrepreneurs, they still have a lot to learn. On the one hand, this means that their ideas still need to be "pivoted" with regularity, but at the same time they are super-ambitious, open-minded and enthusiastic to work with!

Are your hands secretly starting to itch too, but are you getting slightly cold feet? Have no fear: you do not have to save the earth with your idea. What is important to us is that it tackles a legal or social problem. To get an idea of this, we introduce a number of startups that have gone before you. See below who we are currently actively supporting, and who we have mentored before.

We support these initiatives

Vrijmibo for Ukraine

Networking event for Ukrainian refugees

Vrijmibo for Ukraine brings together Ukrainian refugees, NGOs and municipalities from the Amsterdam area. This enables contact to be made in an approachable way, and valuable collaborations to emerge.

Little Law Student

Visualisations for law education

The Little Law Student focuses on making legal education more interactive and help students retain knowledge easier by visualization. Examples include explaining case law by means of cartoons, making flashcards of legal topics, adding QR codes to test knowledge and including podcasts to study while on the road. Making studying more accessible, engaging and interactive for everyone in the legal field.

  • Startups we have previously mentored
    Legal Crowd

    Crowdfunding platform for legal issues

    Legal Crowd is a crowdfunding initiative for important legal cases. Joost and Gabriel began their business together during the Master course in Justice Entrepreneurship and went on to win investment from the start-up fund, our Law Hub pitching competition and were nominated for most innovative students in the Netherlands.

    Eternal Contract

    NFT to file contracts

    Eternal Contract, founded by Jan Swoboda, is an NFT powered tool to save documents eternally in a blockchain. Currently in the market testing phase, this tool is designed to reduce the fall-out post data hack by retaining full access to documents. 


    Contracts tool

    Damsco, founded by Olele Akhile and Daniel Ten Tusscher, is a legal advocacy and contracting service designed to support creatives. The goal is to provide understandable contracts at a low price-point to support the underserved community of freelancers. They are currently completing their user research phase and are happy to talk to any creatives who wish to take part in their pilot.
