By 2020, it is estimated that the global economy will need 212 million new jobs in order to accommodate current unemployment, supplement projected job loss resulting from automated industries, and provide opportunities for the next generation.
Barclays and Unreasonable Group have partnered to launch Unreasonable Impact, the world’s first international network of accelerators focused on scaling up entrepreneurial solutions that will help employ thousands worldwide while solving some of our most pressing societal challenges.
Unreasonable Impact is a series of programmes held in select geographies across the world that support the scale of growth-stage ventures by providing entrepreneurs with the resources, mentorship, and global network of support that they need to rapidly create jobs and address key global issues.
Unreasonable Group and Barclays have built Unreasonable Impact to support companies positioned to create 500+ jobs each over the next five years. Unreasonable Impact will become an R&D engine, helping address the global unemployment crisis by scaling up entrepreneurs worldwide.
