Scaling innovation: Taking a solution that is new to Tanzania and making it available to people on a large scale, pushing it out from early adopters/pilots for main stream use. In practise this means a solution is being designed with scale in mind, thinking how is can go beyond a pilot and be expanded new users, markets, regions or countries. This could include having it adopted and rolled out by government or made widely available by the private sector or local civil society.
Sustaining innovation: Taking a solution that is new to Tanzania and making it available to people in a way that is viable for long term implementation either by working with private sector and alternative sources of financing to scale it or working with government to dedicate budget and resources for the solution and it is included in national strategies, or the solution is paid for by those who are using it and there is a commercial plan to fund the solution beyond venture or angel funds, or there is a long-term commitment by local civil society to provide the solution.
