BOULDER - The Boulder-based Unreasonable Institute is teaming with Stanford's Institute of Design to offer "Unreasonable at Sea," a 100-day experiment in transnational entrepreneurship.

Instead of uniting entrepreneuers with mentors in Boulder as the Unreasonable Institute does, the inaugural Unreasonable at Sea program will offer participants a chance to receive daily on-board mentoring as their ship sails from San Diego on Jan. 9 until it arrives in Barcelona on April 25, 2013.

Daniel Epstein, Unreasonable Institute founder, said the ship will travel 25,000 nautical miles and visit 14 international destinations. At each destination, participants will explore local economies and experiment in taking their technology to market.

"The companies we work with will be leveraging technologies to address massive social and environmental changes, such as inadequate access to health care, poverty, failing educational systems, climate change or the need to democratize information," Epstein said.

"We only want to work with entrepreneurs who are convinced their technology will change the world and we want to do this in parallel with the international learning environment of Semester at Sea."

Application deadline is June 22. To apply or for more information, visit
