What Happened Over the Course of the Week

The MV Explorer, floating home of Unreasonable At Sea, pulled into port into sunny Cape Town in late March and immediately spilled a shipload of hungry entrepreneurs, students, and mentors into this bustling African capital. The city responded in force with a bevy of fantastic events and generous hosts, proving itself to be one of our busiest and most productive destinations yet. From interacting with township youth on the ground to pitching to a room full of Cape Town’s biggest movers and shakers to nights of celebration over African food and drink, many of us can’t wait to return.
