A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE OF THANKS
Below are some simple ways to help us attract hundreds of thousands of people from around the world to support the 2016 Unreasonable East Africa Companies on the Marketplace. Our goal this year is to attract thousands of visitors to the Unreasonable East Africa Marketplace to provide these incredible companies the exposure and support they deserve. We are truly and sincerely grateful for your help in sharing their inspiring work!
GENERAL BLURB ABOUT WHAT WE DO
The Unreasonable East Africa Institute gives an “unreasonable advantage” to entrepreneurs creating solutions to the East Africa’s biggest social and environmental problems. These entrepreneurs aim to make an outsized impact, often with a tiny amount of resources; they have bold visions, but they face tough odds. To give them an unreasonable advantage to beat these odds, we bring these entrepreneurs together to live under the same roof for 5 weeks, where they connect with over 50 world class mentors, are surrounded by a dense concentration of capital sources and are backed by lasting global network of support. To help our entrepreneurs access these resources, we run a crowdfunding platform, the Unreasonable Marketplace, for our companies to raise their tuition cost.

Be part of helping the 2016 Unreasonable East Africa fellows grow their companies to create more impact!
Last December, over 200 companies from across the region applied with the hopes of capturing one of only 10 spots in the Unreasonable East Africa class of 2016. After three months of intensive review, Unreasonable East Africa has selected 10 of these companies to attend its 2016 Institute this July, which will include rigorous workshops on personal and entrepreneurial skill development, hands‐on guidance from over 50 mentors and relationship building with dozens of potential investors. These entrepreneurs have one final challenge to overcome before attending the Institute: stirring up global support to raise the money it costs to attend the Unreasonable Institute East Africa. Go to the Unreasonable Marketplace and join hundreds of people across the globe to pledge your support for the ventures you believe can change the course of history!
