WorkNasi


For startups in Tanzania, Worknasi enables startups to access affordable, furnished workspaces and meeting rooms through sharing. 80% of graduates in Tanzania struggle to find employment. A lack of jobs has spurred increasing rates of crime, violence, extremism, and drug abuse among youth. However, new businesses that could provide jobs often struggle to succeed due to the high rent costs of working spaces and a lack of mentorship. Worknasi aims to make it easier for startups and freelancers to succeed by connecting them with businesses and office owners who want to share their working spaces and meeting rooms. Entrepreneurs are able to save money on rent, and the shared space has the potential to spark invaluable mentor-mentee relationships.
