In spring 2013, the Unreasonable Institute, Semester at Sea and Stanford’s d.school organize Unreasonable@Sea. Ten technological entrepreneurs will sail around the world to test their products in the market, follow workshops, and build relationships with government officials, venture capitalists, and serial entrepreneurs.
The people behind Unreasonable@Sea believe that entrepreneurship can change the world. Within 100 days the chosen entrepreneurs will visit fourteen countries to explore their local economies and experiment with taking their technology to the market. But that’s not all!
They will also get the chance to connect with global venture capital funds, and live and learn from over 600 undergraduates who will be studying abroad with Semester at Sea. During the program the participants will be mentored by twenty world-class serial entrepreneurs and innovators.
The people behind the program only accept companies that help to solve the greatest social and environmental challenges of this century. They are looking for entrepreneurs who are willing to ignore the sceptics, to persist through failure, and who are determined to change the world.
