Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific

Unreasonable Impact is an innovative multi-year partnership between Barclays and Unreasonable Group. The initiative represents a first of its kind international accelerator network with programmes launching in the UK & Europe, Americas, and Asia Pacific.

The fourth Asia Pacific programme will run as a multi-week virtual gathering designed to support growth-stage ventures across China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and Singapore with needed resources, mentorship, and a global network of support.
