Together, these two fellows brainstorm the tough questions surrounding their ventures and demonstrate how the entrepreneurs work together and help one another out. Through them, we explore the integral importance of vulnerability, failure, and community in social enterprise.

This is one episode of a series by Unreasonable Media capturing the stories & journey of the 25 entrepreneurs part of the inaugural Unreasonable Institute in 2010. For more behind the scenes footage of this program, see here.
