Criteria to join

Before applying, please ensure that you meet the criteria listed below:

In order to attend the workshops you must be based or able to travel frequently to one of Anza’s Hubs in Arusha or Moshi.

The Capacity Building Program aims to work with startups that operate within Tanzania’s five most critical social sectors, that is Education, Healthcare, Clean Energy, Agriculture and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).

Your businesses should be more than an idea – you should be post-prototype. You should ideally also have revenue traction (post-revenue).

You should be aged between 21 – 30 years.

Because the programme involves making strategic and operations decision that impact the entire business, its required that a senior member of the business team attend (CEO, CFO, etc.), and make themselves available for all workshops for the duration of the program.

For all the businesses within the programme in partner with COSTECH, there will be no fee charged for participation. Lunch will also be provided.
