Unreasonable Labs Global experiments to establish 5-day accelerators in 10 locations around the world!

Accelerator / Incubator

OVERVIEW

Description

An Unreasonable Lab is a 5-day accelerator for locally-based, early-stage entrepreneurs seeking to address a specific challenge in their venture. It’s like a miniature Unreasonable Institute.

PROGRAM DETAILS AND REQUIREMENTS

Program Details

In 2015, the Unreasonable Institute is launching a global experiment to establish 5-day accelerators called Unreasonable Labs in 10 locations around the world. Each Lab is designed around a specific need that early-stage entrepreneurs face.

SEEKING TEAMS TO LAUNCH LABS: We are looking for teams to launch these labs! Any city, country, or region can apply to run an Unreasonable Lab. Each team gets the Unreasonable Playbook, brand, and financial support. Teams could be from accelerators, from co-working spaces, from corporations, from governments, or just a team of ambitious people!

Applications close January 25th.

SEEKING VENTURES: Once the Lab teams and locations are selected, those labs will be seeking ventures to support. If you are a venture seeking support, stay tuned to where the lab locations end up being!
