  • Creating more female founders and women-led businesses; through the initiative led by women of Sahara, SheFound. We are looking to run more activities and programs to support and create more female founders and encourage the growth of women-led businesses. Being a private company our focus will also be identifying investable businesses from the program and investing in them.
  • Investing more time in future technologies; being a futuristic company we want to spend more time understanding how can we nurture and support solutions that use future techs (AI, IoT, Robotics, etc). We will continue to support communities such as Tanzania AI Lab. We want to identify, support and invest in these businesses with proven business models our priority being solutions with high social impact.
  • Creating a Venture Fund for Startups and Nurturing Investable Businesses; Its tough to accelerate and fund startups at the same time. In 2020, our plan is to work with different partners, local, regional and global to design an investment fund for startups in Tanzania, purely commercial fund. The aim is to create a sizeable fund to support later-stage businesses in Tanzania which are looking for growth funds.
