Unreasonable Institute

Unreasonable Institute gets entrepreneurs what they need to scale solutions to the world's biggest problems. We do this by identifying entrepreneurs with the potential to address problems like poverty, lack of education, and social injustice at scale, and then by swarming them with mentors, funders, and partners to help grow their impact. Our goal is to help each of these ventures scale up to meaningfully impact the lives of at least one million people each.

Each year, Unreasonable unites two dozen entrepreneurs in 3 different locations to live under the same roof for four-five weeks in one house. There, they receive training from 40-75 mentors, ranging from the Chairman of the Board at Whole Foods, to the former head of user experience at Google X, to an entrepreneur who's enabled over 20 million farmers to move out of poverty. In the process, they form relationships with 20-40 investment funds, and receive financial modeling support and legal advice. Participants in Institutes are also eligible to attend Unreasonable Investor Days, a twice a year event that allows them to connect with more than 100 prospective funders in person.

So far, 116 companies from 45 countries have come through Unreasonable's three Institutes in Collectively, their products and services have reached more than 4.5 million people. 79% of them have have raised funds, totaling over $53.5 million!
