■Unreasonable Lab Japanについて
「Unreasonable Challenge Day」でお待ちしています。
Conference Program in English
■Unreasonable Lab Japan (ULJ) overview
A five-day hyper accelerator born to raise the bar in Japan’s social entrepreneurship ecosystem, ULJ originated out of the Unreasonable Institute, a Boulder, Colorado based accelerator whose participating businesses have achieved fundraising totals of over eight billion yen.
One year has passed since Unreasonable Lab Japan was first held. This year, ULJ brings an even greater number of social entrepreneurs, partners and supporters in a growing ecosystem.
The mountain we're climbing may be high, but we won't ignore the problem that entrepreneurs tackling some of the biggest social and environmental problems of our time need more clarity, mentorship and access to funding. ULJ is being run with a desire to support these efforts.
With that in mind, we would like to share some of these efforts that take place in Unreasonable Lab Japan, by creating a day, called Unreasonable Challenge Day. Unreasonable Challenge Day hopes to create a space for dialogue on social entrepreneurship in Japan. We will be showcasing supporting speakers, workshop facilitators, sponsors and participating entrepreneurs.
Japan is said to be a problem developed nation.
However, looking at it from another perspective, it could be a problem "solution" developed nation, with the opportunity to become a leader in solving social problems locally that can be applied globally.
We are hoping that this day will be a way to increase the number of challengers who will tackle solutions to the world's overflowing social problems through entrepreneurship as we are preparing a space brimming with enthusiasm. We would like to welcome you along.
