Entrepreneurs at Work

The Unreasonable Institute is a mentor‐intensive accelerator for start-up entrepreneurs hungry to tackle the world’s greatest social and environmental problems. Founded in 2010, the Unreasonable Institute annually unites 25 high‐impact entrepreneurs from around the world in Boulder, Colorado for six weeks. During that time, the entrepreneurs live and work with 60 world‐class mentors, pitch their ventures to hundreds of investors in San Francisco and Boulder, obtain legal advice and design consulting, form relationships with up to 30 impact investment funds, and prepare to launch financially self‐sustaining, globally scalable ventures that can serve the needs of at least 1 million people.

Please vote for us and contribute $10 to this very worthy cause:

In voting, you have an opportunity to test out your own social marketing savvy through a gaming element: you receive one point for every dollar contributed and two points for every dollar that is contributed as a result of sharing your vote via social media. Top point earners receive prize bundles from HP, which has come on board this year as the Unreasonable Institute’s first corporate partner and as part of the company’s longstanding support of entrepreneurship.

We would be very grateful for your support. Participation in the program this summer will turbo-charge our venture, allowing us to serve even more of those in need.
