To be selected as one of our Anzisha ventures, your business or project will be judged on the following 5 criteria:

  • Is your venture established with customers and beneficiaries and are you offering value to them?
  • Are you, the founder, who is leading and managing your venture?
  • Is your venture demonstrating some impact already?
  • Whether your venture is a for-profit business or cause-based, does it already earn revenue or already impacting beneficiaries? Is there potential to increase revenues or beneficiary reach with support from Anzisha?
  • Has your venture created jobs and is there potential to create more high quality jobs?

To be selected as one of our Anzisha Fellows, you must demonstrate two important qualities:

  • You are the leader of your venture and you drive both venture strategy and operations.
  • You spend at least 20 hours a week (or more) on your business and plan to continue to do so after selection.
