The culmination and the completion of the Institute! Highlights include graduation with the Governor of Colorado at the Capital, announcing the results of Unreasonable Village Capital where 3 entrepreneurs receive $75,000 each in investment, and following up with entrepreneurs as they go back to their home towns forever changed by their experiences and their reflections upon the Unreasonable Institute.
In this episode we take a look into how the Mentors of the Unreasonable Institute have guided and helped form the Institute itself. As we examine this story over drinks between Daniel and 3 Unreasonable Mentors, we weave in and out of a focus on the Unreasonable Community that has been developed, the culminating Global Summit, and we watch as the entrepreneurs pitch to one another during the Unreasonable Village Capital Pitch Fest.
The fellows alternate between frantic work and incredible play as they drive 1,500 miles from Boulder, Colorado, through Wyoming, Utah and Nevada to attend the Unreasonable West Coast PitchFest in San Francisco. While there, they vie to make an impression in the minds of 100 of the Bay area's most prominent investors and philanthropists.
The night before the Fellows get on a bus to drive 3,000 miles round trip to San Francisco, we watch as they frantically pull together and prepare their pitches and fine-tune their business models. This episode also focuses on the stories found in one room at the Unreasonable Mansion: We watch the relationship between three young woman entrepreneurs who went from strangers, to admirers, to family.
The institute hits it's midway point and as the Fellows begin to prepare for "the biggest opportunity of their entire lives" we welcome Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu from Nigeria and we say goodbye to Jehan as he heads back to Australia. In this episode the Fellows begin to prepare for a surprise 3,000 mile road trip to San Francisco where each entrepreneur will pitch to an audience of the world's top impact investors and philanthropists and we track the excitement through the story of Nnmaeka and his venture, Smallholder's Rural Farm Radio.
