On an otherwise reasonable evening in July, more than 1,000 people packed an auditorium in Boulder, Colorado, for the culmination of the 2014 Unreasonable Institute. They came to watch 11 ventures present their solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Watch here as, in one of those presentations, Yellow Leaf Hammocks founder Joe Demin talks about the 600-mile taxi ride that led to his company, which is creating sustainable jobs for Thailand’s hill tribe communities. And they’re doing it by selling some of the most comfortable hammocks in the world!
