Applications have opened for this year’s edition of the Unreasonable East Africa accelerator programme, which is looking to back entrepreneurs from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.
Unreasonable East Africa looks to assist ventures in the East Africa region building solutions to social and environmental problems, by providing them with an “unreasonable advantage” by introducing them to a large network of mentors, investors and partners.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 programme, which will run between March and December next year. The organisers are looking for startups with at least five paying customers, a clear social or economic impact, and two full-time co-founders.
“We are passionate about one thing and one thing alone. Finding the best entrepreneurs and surrounding them with all the resources that they need to grow – this is the main thing that keeps our team going through, and also that keeps us up at night,” Unreasonable East Africa said.
“We are heavily invested in the successes of the entrepreneurs with whom we have partnered. If you are looking for a true thought partner to help bear the burden of growing a successful company, then you need to consider our programme.”
The deadline for applications is December 16, after which 15 startups will be selected to take part in the programme.
