Asia Pacific Program

Scaling impact across Asia Pacific

Launched in 2017, we are now in our 5th 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 90 ventures headquartered across the Asia Pacific that are uniquely positioned to create the jobs of tomorrow while solving our most pressing societal and environmental challenges. The Asia Pacific program is part of Unreasonable Impact's broader global initiative that is actively supporting 250+ ventures across the world.

Meet our 2022 Asia Pacific Cohort

Each year we identify and privately invite a select portfolio of growth-stage ventures to join the Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific program. Below are the 14 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.

90 Ventures are part of Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific

The Unreasonable Fellowship is supported by a global community of 1,040 Mentors — from industry experts to renowned executives and policymakers. Below are just some of the Mentors who are proactively supporting our Asia Pacific cohorts.
