Unreasable Fellow 2012: Erine Gray

After weeks of e-mail requests, social media updates, and a grand party, Erine Gray, Aunt Bertha's founder, is an Unreasonable Fellow. The Unreasonable Institute supports entrepreneurs using venture creation as a means to take on the world's biggest problems and arms these entrepreneurs with mentorship, opportunities to get capital, and a world-class network to make it happen.

Basically in summer 2012:
25 entrepreneurs will move to Boulder, Colorado for 6 weeks. During that time, they will interact with 50 mentors, ranging from the CTO of HP, to the co-founder of Google.org, to an entrepreneur who's enabled over 19 million farmers to move out of poverty.

These entrepreneurs also form close relationships with portfolio managers from over 20 impact investment funds like Acumen Fund, Good Capital, LGT Venture Philanthropies and more; obtain legal advice, design consulting, and fundraising training; and pitch at least one hundred potential funders. They do it all while living under the same roof in Boulder, Colorado for 6 weeks with 24 peers dedicated to defining progress in our time!

All we can say is thank you to everyone who has given us wings with their support!

We will share more as we learn more!
