Applications for Shared Mission programme 2021 are now open
We will provide EUR 100,000 worth of free legal advice to companies, projects, services and initiatives that aim to do good in local and global communities in any way that may be called innovative.
Criteria for applicants
Focus: Innovative projects that make a positive contribution to the region – your innovation can relate to any sphere of human life, although health-related projects are especially welcome. We would also gladly consider forming long-term partnerships with qualifying organisations.
Entity form: Projects carried out by all kinds of organisations and individuals are welcome – they can be NGOs, established companies or government agencies; innovators themselves or participants in innovative projects. We are hoping to include some startups in the programme.
Geography: Projects can be either local or international. Initiatives that cover all the Baltic countries and preferably also Belarus would be ideal candidates.
Expected scope: The number of hours of free legal advice is not limited; the scope of work will be agreed between us and the project managers. We want to help as many organisations as possible, but we also want to be sure that we see through what we have started, in order to get maximum impact.
Legal issues: We can advise on all the legal and tax issues that you may face, from establishing an entity and creating agreements, to data protection and intellectual property issues.
Please apply by filling the form below. We accept applications till 18 April.
If you are not sure if your project is a good fit for the programme or you have additional questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also plan to select another round of projects in August and September. If you are not ready yet, but are interested in receiving our help, send us a note at the same email email@example.com and we will inform you about the next round.
