We've mapped out a snapshot of the Justice Tech startup ecosystem, organized by their tech verticals and the stage of the justice system on which they focus. As the Justice Tech space continues to grow, we also encourage you to check out the growing database of Justice Tech startups created by the founders of Paladin.
Village Capital and American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact are creating a community of investors to mobilize investment capital towards Justice Tech.
This network will create a safe space to:
Demystify justice tech and discuss ethical challenges
Share best practices in identifying and supporting justice tech startups
Contribute to creating an impact framework for mobilizing investment capital in the Justice Tech space: "Justice Tech Lens Investing"
Village Capital and AmFam Institute are building out the Justice Tech Investor Network in 2021. If you are an investor, impact-management leader, and/or other stakeholder interested in learning more and joining us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out this contact form.
*It is important for us to recognize that Justice Tech is a larger domain of entrepreneurship that can encompass racial, environmental, LGBTQIA+, and economic justice among others. The area we will be exploring with this partnership is the ways in which Justice Tech intersects with the US criminal and civil justice system. We would like to echo calls from intersectional leaders that it is important to not narrow the conversation of justice solely to criminal and civil justice to the detriment of a holistic perspective including other systems.
