An incubator created in partnership with the Civil Society Foundation to help start-ups of social initiatives test their ideas and grow innovative ideas into viable solutions. NULA welcomes all ideas that address a pressing societal problem, for example, in the fields of education, public health, child and family welfare or other areas.

The NULA programme runs for nine months. During this time, it will explore the problems and target groups, further develop the content of the operational and financial model solutions, and acquire the skills to present its solution. Up to three teams will receive up to € 25,000 in start-up funding from the National Foundation of Civil Society by the end of the programme.
