1) New project development
The Entrepreneurship Project has the opportunity to research, develop, and pilot an entirely new programme for implementation in Dar es Salaam in Summer 2018. We are looking for individuals who are excited by the challenge of starting from a blank slate, and engaging in both primary and secondary research. Those with a prior background in business-related areas of study (i.e. business administration, finance, marketing, social innovation, etc.) would be especially valuable in terms of project design.
2) Women’s empowerment focus
For the upcoming summer, CDI has committed to an overarching theme of women’s empowerment as it relates to entrepreneurship and business innovation. For both cultural and logistic reasons, the previous project was not designed in a way that allowed for much sensitivity to gender issues. Those interested in gender equality will have the opportunity to directly contribute to R&D on how development can level the labour market playing field for Tanzanian women.
