We are proud to announce that TAPBDS is the newest member of our Local Expert Network (LEN). This partnership represents our first Local Expert in Tanzania. It will increase the availability of our data-led tools to local agri-SMEs and help them grow more professionally. Combining TAPBDS’s innovative business development solutions with our standardized assessments will help Tanzanian agri-SMEs to access markets and finance.
TAPBDS, a leader in transforming SMEs
TAPBDS is a Tanzanian company specialized in business development services. They work to develop custom solutions and support for SMEs and cooperatives to help them improve their business strategies. This leads to better operations, sound investments, and access to finance and markets. They provide capacity building, coaching and mentoring, financial and market linkages, and consultancies. In the agricultural sector, they work to help agri-SMEs enter larger value chains.
The Local Expert Network: Global Standard, Local Expertise
The LEN is a partnership program that both creates value for market players and capacity builders in target countries and also creates value for local businesses. Through the LEN, we attract organizations that share our vision of professionalizing agribusinesses and will serve as reliable SCOPE tool implementers. These experts provide the much-needed local infrastructure with the capacity to offer ongoing business development support to agribusinesses, working well beyond donor-funded initiatives. Through partnering with these like-minded businesses, we ensure that international capacity builders can efficiently implement their projects while strengthening the local economy.
Future work together with AGRA
Both SCOPEinsight and TAPBDS have a history of working with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), and we hope to continue this work together with AGRA’s upcoming project to scale up SMEs. Together, we can make a positive impact on Tanzanian SMEs. We also intend to use our Bankability Metrics in this project to create access to finance.
A partnership full of potential
We hope to work together with TAPBDS to provide necessary services to Tanzanian agri-SMEs. This will allow them to professionalize and improve themselves. We share with TAPBDS the goal of creating access to finance for agri-SMEs, and we understand how important high-quality capacity builders are for reaching that goal.
We stand by TAPBDS’s commitment to transforming SMEs and cooperatives, and we are proud to welcome them as the newest member of our Local Expert Network.
