Although distinct organizations, Knowing how closely we are working together, we consider the Unreasonable Institute as more than a founding partner… we see the Institute as our sister organization.
The Unreasonable Institute is a mentorship-driven acceleration program for entrepreneurs tackling social and environmental problems. Each year, the Institute unites 25 entrepreneurs from every corner of the globe to live under the same roof for six weeks in Boulder, Colorado. These entrepreneurs receive training from 50 world-class mentors, ranging from the Former Director of Google.org, to the CTO of HP, to an entrepreneur who’s enabled over 19 million farmers to move out of poverty. In the process, they form relationships with 20 investment funds, receive legal advice & design consulting, and pitch to hundreds of investors and partners.
After seeing the success of the model of the Unreasonable Institute, it’s founder, Daniel Epstein, is eager to launch Unreasonable at Sea with a new approach. Instead of uniting entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurial Hub of Boulder (as Institute does), this accelerator will take place on a ship as it travels more than 25,000 nautical miles around the globe to 14 international destinations.
