Americas Program

Scaling impact across the Americas

Launched in 2016, we are now in our 6th year of supporting growth-stage ventures operating at the nexus of advanced technology, profit and impact.

To date, alongside our partners at Barclays, we have supported 79 ventures headquartered across the Americas that are uniquely positioned to create the jobs of tomorrow while solving our most pressing societal and environmental challenges. The Americas program is part of Unreasonable Impact's broader global initiative that is actively supporting 250+ ventures across the world.

Meet our 2022 Americas Cohort

Each year we identify and privately invite a select portfolio of growth-stage ventures to join the Unreasonable Impact Americas. Below are the 12 ventures who are a part of the 2022 cohort.

This cohort is supported by a curated community of Unreasonable mentors, investors, and Barclays' colleagues. Together this community of support is dedicated to championing the growth and impact of the ventures now and into the future.
