The company joins 15 other ventures from all over the world for the first annual Unreasonable FUTURE program, a multi-year collaboration aimed at aligning the future of work with social equity
Following a rigorous selection process involving hundreds of companies from all over the world, Philippines-based Kalibrr was chosen to join 15 other growth-stage ventures for the Unreasonable FUTURE Program.
Described as a bold, multi-year initiative that will bring innovators and entrepreneurs together to design a future in which people and technology work side-by-side to solve workplace challenges and unlock human potential everywhere, the first of the annual event is scheduled to take place from March 27 to April 7, at a private venue outside of San Jose, California.
According to Daniel Epstein, founder and CEO of Unreasonable Group, “Unreasonable FUTURE is bringing together a hand-picked portfolio of entrepreneurs leveraging advanced technologies to ensure future generations thrive in the new economy.”
These include companies who are shaping the future of learning and up-skilling, and are helping underserved youth and those whose jobs are being replaced by technology to find pathways to new opportunities in the digital era. The portfolio also includes entrepreneurs who use disruptive technologies to maximize human potential in the workplace of tomorrow.
Epstein further elaborated how the goal of Unreasonable FUTURE is to bring these companies together to rewrite the narrative of what it means for all humans to thrive in a new, more equitable economy. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to support these outstanding ventures to help design a future that will work for everyone.”
For its part, the Kalibrr team is similarly excited, as the Unreasonable FUTURE initiative seems to be very much in-line with the company’s goals of helping talented professionals connect with the right companies and find meaningful jobs, and for employers to be able to spend less time doing administrative work in recruitment, and more on building relationships with qualified talent.
“It’s an honor for our work at Kalibrr to be recognized by a global panel of change makers who care and have the resources to impact the problem we spend everyday solving - helping people get great jobs.” shares Paul Rivera, Co-Founder and CEO of Kalibrr. “I’m looking forward to what we learn and what we can share and build to impact the communities Kalibrr serves today.”
