Unreasonable Institute Global


Stage 1: Submit your written application.

OPENS: SEPT. 23rd 2013
CLOSE: Nov. 7th 2013

Our written application consists of 11 short answer questions about your market, your impact, your team, and your business model. All eligible teams will get written feedback on their applications.


Stage 2: Interview with us via Skype.

START: DEC 2nd. 2013
END: DEC. 13th, 2013

We’ll select teams that seem like a good fit the Institute for a 30-minute Skype or phone interview. You’ll be notified whether or not you’ll advance to Stage 2 by within 2 weeks of your interview.


Stage 3: Go deeper with experts.

January 2014

This stage of the process may involve an additional interview with someone who is an expert in your field or geography. We’ll also check in with your references. Note: This stage is replacing what we use to do which was use the Unreasonable Marketplace as a selection tool. The Marketplace will still exist for Unreasonable ventures to raise their tuition costs to attend the Institute but it will no longer be used as a selection tool. You can read about why here. 


Finally: We announce the Fellows!

By January 20 of 2014!

We’ll choose between 10-20 ventures to attend the 2014 Institute! You’ll be notified one way or the other by January 20th of our final decision and two members of your team will be able to represent your venture at the Institute!
