2016 Unreasonable East Africa Institute/Labs for High Impact Entrepreneurs

Every year, an exclusive group of thrice-vetted companies we work with spends 5 weeks with us in Kampala, Uganda, during which we work intensively with them alongside our 80+ impressive mentors to get the company into the best possible shape to grow. We then expose and connect them to our network of 550+ funders so that they can raise funding. But it does not end there. We and the entire Unreasonable network continue to support our entrepreneurs for the life of their company and beyond

Unreasonable East Africa Labs

East Africa Labs are 5-day hyper-accelerators focused on local context. Our first lab, with the theme of Business Model Validation, is designed to help idea/early stage entrepreneurs test and validate their assumptions to build a stronger business foundation. We will be uniting 10-20 carefully selected companies in Kampala, Uganda, for 5 days in a row in April 2016 (exact dates to be announced). Our goal is to help each of the companies we work with, no matter how small they start, to grow and eventually scale to meaningfully impact the lives of over 1 million people each
