Americas Program

Scaling impact across the Americas

Launched in 2016, we are now in our 7th 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 77 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 269+ ventures across the world.

Meet our 2022 Americas Cohort
