In April 2003, The Ministry of Industries and Trade published a Small and Medium Enterprise Development Policy, which amongst other things envisaged development of business/technology incubators as a means to facilitate enterprise start-ups and /or growth. The program was established in 2003 and the pilot program was rolled out in Dar es salaam Industrial Estate with only 6 incubatees.
