Boulder and Denver, Colorado, USA
The first 5-day accelerator in Colorado (outside of our 5-week Global accelerator which is also hosted in Colorado) was a “Business Model Validation” designed hosted at Sterling Rice Group. It was designed to provide Colorado-based early-stage entrepreneurs with a step-by-step methodology to rapidly validate their venture’s business model.
The second 5-day accelerator was an “Investment Preparedness” Lab designed to prepare similar ventures with the tools necessary to take on investment capital and scale their ventures.
Attending ventures included:
- Community Funded provides technology and resources to empower communities to promote ideas and gain support through collaboration.
- The Coterie is Denver’s first women’s coworking space, providing members with a beautiful space that is flexible and convenient, while being energizing and supportive.
- The Mile High Workshop creates and supports employment opportunities and provides job training for members of the community seeking to rebuild from addictions, homelessness, and incarceration.
Results: These Labs in Colorado were the first 5-day programs run by Unreasonable Institute and led to the launching of 10 more Labs around the world in 2015. From workshops to happy hours to in-market interviews, the entrepreneurs did not sit still for long. We walked away knowing that we had to expand this model and find teams to run Labs around the world.
SupportersThis lab was made possible by these great supporters.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone to believed in us.
