Investors commit $5,000 upfront as a sign they’re willing to fund Unreasonable Fellows
We know we can do more to help our entrepreneurs secure funding. So we’re launching a plan to bring at least 40 Unreasonable Angels to the 2012 Unreasonable Institute. Unreasonable Angels are investors who actually put money on the table to show how serious they are about investing in our Fellows. Each commits $5,000 a year for three years. If they invest in an Unreasonable Fellow, that $5,000 automatically goes into their investment. If they don’t, we pool these $5,000 commitments into a fund allocated amongst Unreasoanble Fellows!
So far, Unreasonable Mentors Neal Baer, former Executive Producer of Law & Order: SVU and ER and Libby Cook, co-founder of Wild Oats and Sunflower Markets, have each committed $5,000 and become our first Unreasonable Angels! More are on the way. If you’re interested in becoming an Unreasonable Angel, email Unreasonable President Daniel Epstein!
