Social Enterprise Alliance Partners With Unreasonable Institute to Present New Leaders Lab
The Lab is accepting applications from leaders (age 21-35) of new social enterprises. Applicants must be able to cover their lodging and transportation costs, but tuition is free for those accepted into the program. The application deadline is Sunday, July 26th at midnight CT.
“Our job is to help social entrepreneurs conduct effective experiments which in turn create sustainable solutions to problems,” said Teju Ravilochan, CEO and co-founder of Unreasonable Institute. “Most entrepreneurs make assumptions, and our goal is to also ensure they are relentlessly empirical. Participants in the New Leaders Lab will proactively pursue the market truth.”
Summit15 will be held September 16-18 in Denver. SEA expects to host over 500 participants who will hear from about 80 speakers. The SEA Summit provides the opportunity to learn, connect and collaborate with thought leaders in the field. Up to 50 people will be selected to attend the New Leaders Lab.
