About Us

Unreasonable East Africa exists to give entrepreneurs tackling East Africa’s greatest challenges an “unreasonable advantage”. How? Each year we match a 12-15 carefully vetted ventures from around East Africa with over 50 world class mentors(ranging from a founder of 10 companies, 3 of which IPO’d for between $700m and $1billion each to the co-founder of a company that has moved upto 760,000 people out of poverty), a dense concentration of capital sources(over a dozen different funders) and a global network of support at a 5-week boot camp in Kampala, Uganda.

About the Unreasonable Climax

July 24, 2014
This is the biggest event of the year. Our class of 12 Ventures will take the stage at The Hub Cinema at Oasis Mall, in front of over 200 people to share their visions for how they are defining progress in our time. Each venture will deliver a 6-min TED talk style presentation on their work. This is a chance to learn about their work but also to be moved and captivated! Our hope is to move you to tears and bring you to your feet.
