TAKING YOUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE STARTUP TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Featured Organization of the Month : Unreasonable Institute
The Unreasonable Institute is an accelerator program that strives to get entrepreneurs who are solving social and environmental problems the resources they need to scale their businesses and their impact. Each year we unite around 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 a Time Magazine Hero of the Planet, to the head of user experience at Google X, to an entrepreneur who has enabled over 20 million farmers to move out of poverty. In the process, they form relationships with 25 investment funds, receive legal advice and design consulting, and pitch to hundreds of potential investors. Our goal is to help these entrepreneurs scale their ventures to reach the needs of a million people.
