A Cruise Full of the World's Top Innovators—and Cesar Harada is On It

TED Fellow Cesar Harada is used to working on the open water. The Lavin exclusive speaker is the inventor of the revolutionary ocean technology Protei—shape-shifting, wind-powered and open-source sailing robots used to sense and clean the oceans. But come January, Harada will embark on a oceanic learning experience unlike any other, with Unreasonable at Sea. It's a mentorship program that takes young tech ventures—specifically, those working to solve today's biggest environmental and societal challenges—and helps them expand and grow under the guidance of entrepreneurial experts, all while aboard the fastest cruise-liner in the world. 

Harada's Protei emerged as one of 11 companies to make it through the highly competitive application process (there's even a section on the Unreasonable website called “Brutal Expectations”). Twenty serial entrepreneurs, innovators and intellectuals will take the group through an accelerated educational program. Think of it as a floating incubator for tech start-ups: the idea is for these hand-selected innovators to learn how to bring their operations to new markets and ultimately create a globally relevant product. The ship will sail across the Pacific and Indian Oceans for nearly four months, making 14 international stops along the way. Each port will be an opportunity for the students to pitch their ideas in front of local politicians, business leaders and fellow entrepreneurs. We wish Cesar and his team the best of luck!
