TBY talks to Fauzia Malik, Founding Member & President, Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) Tanzania, on the sector.

Fauzia Malik

What are the defining features of EO in Tanzania?

EO is a global organization with over 12,000 members across the world. In Tanzania, we launched our chapter in 2015 and had just 16 members. Since then, we have doubled in size and have been singled out as the fastest-growing EO chapter at our annual global summit. The key driver behind this is that we offer learning, which is scarce in Tanzania. EO, through our Chapter Board of eight members, arranges learning events with speakers from all over the world, providing training and tools for entrepreneurs to grow their ventures.
