The Unreasonable Climax is a greater point of an intensive, residential, five weeks institute for startup firms tackling environmental and social problems. Entrepreneurs within East Africa come together for five weeks in Kampala to receive training, connection to investors and mentorship.

More than 300 people are expected to fill the Hub’s Cineplex Cinema at Oasis Mall to witness how East African entrepreneurs are solving problems regarding education, health, the environment and poverty. According to the event’s organisers, each of the 12 entrepreneurs will give a six-minute, TED-style talks about their ventures, themselves and their meaning of “progress in our time.”

“We hope that seeing these entrepreneurs narrate their stories and give their plans fascinates you, moves you to tears and brings you to your feet,” said Joachim Ewechu, the CEO and co-founder of the Unreasonable East Africa.

“Show up and get inspired, informed, meet the entrepreneurs and discover how you can help make an impact and lend a hand,” said Mandela Ivan, the VP Finance and co-founder of the Unreasonable East Africa.

The event will be attended by fellow entrepreneurs, investors, Kampala Ecosystem members of the broader East African community and students.
