The Unreasonable East Africa Launchpad


Unreasonable East Africa is holding the Unreasonable Launchpad on 29 July at the Sheraton Hotel in Kampala, Uganda, where over 400 people will unite to learn how 8 East African social ventures are taking on the region's greatest problems. A range of talented young leaders, established social entrepreneurs, and angel investors will be attending.

We are happy to share that One Young World has two free tickets that will be allocated based on an application process. If you are not selected to receive one of One Young World's complimentary tickets, you can still attend by purchasing a ticket here

Unreasonable East Africa supports early stage entrepreneurs to tackle the region's greatest challenges. Each year, they match 10 - 15 carefully selected ventures from around East Africa with over 50 world class mentors. Mentors include serial entrepreneurs with $1 billion IPOs and social entrepreneurs who have lifted 760,000 people out of poverty.

The Unreasonable Launchpad

Unreasonable East Africa’s 2016 class of entrepreneurs will be taking the stage to give 5-min TED talk-style presentations about their work. These entrepreneurs come from across the region: Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. They are driven by both profit and meaningful impact, and have dedicated their lives to building companies that are solving some of the biggest challenges we face in our time.

They range from a company that is utilising mobile technology to increase the access to financial services for small holder farmers to a company working to increase the access to credit finance for small businesses.  

These companies are at the cutting edge of innovation, launching products and services that use sustainable business models to benefit the lives of millions of people in East Africa. The 2016 class will be joined by a select group of innovators that will be exhibiting their products.
