Santa Clara University’s Center for Science, Technology, and Society
Santa Clara University is committed to educating leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion who will help fashion a more just, humane, and sustainable world.
As a University of Distinction, the Center for Science, Technology, and Society undertakes three integrative activities: educating students, engaging the public, and exemplifying the realization of social benefit through our flagship Global Social Benefit Incubator Program (GSBI™). In so doing, we forge strong connections across local and global businesses, civic and academic institutions, and the technology of Silicon Valley and the Jesuit values of service.
The Unreasonable Institute selects 25 young, high-impact entrepreneurs from across the globe to attend its eight-week, mentor-intensive incubation program in Boulder, Colorado. During these eight weeks, these entrepreneurs undergo rigorous skill training, gain access to seed capital, obtain legal advice, prototype consulting, and receive mentorship from 60 proven entrepreneurs and investors. Through this incubation program, the Unreasonable Institute’s aim is to enable 25 social ventures a year to effectively address a major global issue in a way that is financially self-sustaining and globally scalable to millions of people.
