WANTED: THE WORLD’S MOST UNREASONABLE ENTREPRENEURS

Dear non-profit leaders and social entrepreneurs,

I just finished speaking with folks at Unreasonable Entrepreneurs, and wanted to share this incredible opportunity with all of you. The Unreasonable Institute, an international accelerator for high-impact ventures, is scouring the globe for entrepreneurs with solutions to the greatest social and environmental challenges of our time.

Selected entrepreneurs, dubbed “Unreasonable Fellows,” will gather in Boulder, Colorado between June 16 and July 27, 2011 to live with 24 like-minded peers from around the world and participate in the Unreasonable Institute’s six-week acceleration program. They will receive guidance from over 60 mentors, including the co-founder of Google.org, the founder of a $200 million impact investment fund, and an entrepreneur credited with enabling over 24 million farmers to move out of poverty. In addition, the 25 Unreasonable Fellows will form relationships with portfolio managers from up to thirty impact investment funds, including the Rockefeller Foundation, Acumen Fund, and Good Capital. They’ll receive design training from IDEO, fundraising consulting from an entrepreneur who has raised over $1 billion, impact assessment tools from B Corporation, legal guidance from a network of pro-bono lawyers in 100 countries, and pitch to hundreds of investors and funders in Silicon Valley.

The deadline is tomorrow, so there is little time to get your application together, however the opportunity is incredible, so I encourage you to apply! The applications must be submitted by 24:00 GMT -6.
