The world’s first international partnership focused on supporting rapid growth ventures that are positioned to close the global literacy gap by 2030.

Pearson and Unreasonable Group share a belief that entrepreneurs are best positioned to come up with the new models and break-through technologies needed to close the global literacy gap. This is where Project Literacy Lab comes into focus. Leveraging the Project Literacy platform, Pearson and Unreasonable have co-founded a new initiative to wrap resources around the fastest growing ventures worldwide-each positioned to uniquely solve key challenges tied to illiteracy.

The inaugural Project Literacy Lab is bringing together 16 ventures, headquartered across 5 continents, from July 2nd thru July 16th in a private venue just outside of San Francisco. Over the course of this two week program, we will align these entrepreneurs with the resources, mentorship, access to financing, and the global network of support needed to help them scale internationally and intercontinentally faster. Overtime, we will become an R&D and insights engine into the rest of the world highlighting patterns around what is, and isn’t working, in our shared effort to sustainably ensure universal literacy.
