Unreasonable Institute presents an Unreasonable Climax in Boulder

The Unreasonable Institute's culminating event, the Unreasonable Climax, will go down this Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, in Boulder.

Friday's "A Day for Play" consists of free workshops, activities and discussions for Climax attendees at venues across downtown Boulder, including Shine, SCRiB and Bitter Bar; from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, 22 entrepreneurs will take the stage at Macky Auditorium for five minutes each to deliver TED-style talks about themselves, their ventures and their definition of progress in our time. Tickets for the Climax are $60, with VIP and student prices available.

The Institute is an opportunity for two dozen entrepreneurs from around the world to live together for six weeks in Boulder while learning from fifty mentors, including Tony Prophet, SVP of the Worldwide Supply Chain for HP. The Institute brings together entrepreneurs tackling some of the world's greatest challenges, and forms relationships between them, their mentors and major impact investment funds and angel investors.

Sheikh Abu Turay, a former refugee turned cocoa farmer whose venture, Liberation Chocolate, aims to get former child soldiers out of poverty through cocoa production, and Ashley Murray, founder and CEO of Waste Enterprisers Ltd., which hopes to create a sanitation revolution that will propel Africa to the forefront of human waste reuse and eradicate disease, are two of the 22 entrepreneurs who lived in Boulder for the six-week, high-intensity business accelerator program.

Tomorrow's presentations include "Creating Your Own Luck" with THINQACTION founder Antonio Neves and "Stop Annoying Your Followers: Social Media That Connects," a lunch discussion with Waylon Lewis of elephant journal.
