Disruption occurs when you take something expected and do the unexpected.

Entrepreneurial accelerators are picking up pace around the world and many have been modelled on the premier Y Combinator Program in the Silicon Valley. People have since thought of more unique ways to put entrepreneurs together to spur relationships, ideas and of course new ventures.  One good example is 500Startups organized Geeks on a Plane, which is an invite-only tour for startups, investors, and executives to learn about burgeoning technology markets worldwide. But the people at Unreasonableatsea have taken things to a new level, or should I say sea level by putting entrepreneurs on a ship to sail around the world.

According to their website, “Unreasonable at Sea is a radical experiment in global entrepreneurship.” With nowhere to escape besides jumping ship literally, 11 tech startups companies will sail around the world and visit 13 countries for 100 days to be mentored by 20 high calibre  world-class serial entrepreneurs and innovators.” The goal is to build start-ups that will solve some of the greatest world in the areas of energy, education, healthcare and logistics etc. Some of the mentors are the best in the business and even include Nobel Prize Laureate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
