Tyler Hartung : Making the World a Little More Unreasonable
What do you do to make your program sustainable and impactful? How do you measure your impact? Tyler Hartung, co-founder of the Unreasonable Institute, will share stories about how entrepreneurs from all walks of life and all corners of the globe have turned their life experiences into fully-formed companies impacting the lives of millions. From a Ugandan who quit the most prestigious job in his country to help slum dwellers to a UC Berkeley PhD who left to deal with human waste in Ghana to a man who in his 20's found himself suddenly serving as his mother’s caretaker and turned this into a business, see how experience and community catalyzes a new way to be purposeful and profitable in the 21st century.

At the conference this year, we are asking you, our members and friends, to participate in one of our general conference sessions. Let your voice be heard! How it works: Ask yourself these questions as it pertains to you as a practitioner of EE: What is your passion? How have you innovated? What new idea(s) do you have? How will you advance EE? If you have an answer to any of these questions, we would like to invite you to submit an essay for a program offering at the International Conference called: ActivatEE. We are collecting 800-1000 word essays from practitioners/attendees interested in presenting as part of a keynote address on Saturday, October 25. Selected individuals will be asked to present their essay as a speech, video, presentation, or in some other creative manner at the conference.
