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 world class mentors, are surrounded by a dense concentration of capital sources and are backed by lasting global network of support.
