daniel epstein about me

Now before you begin exploring the pages, you should know something about me. I’m obsessed with one belief – I believe entrepreneurship is the answer to the greatest issues we face today and I’ve dedicated my life accordingly. Today, this passion for entrepreneurship and startups has led to the creation of the Unreasonable Group.


I think that this worked for two major reasons. The first was that the students spent time in Nepal, on the ground, developing empathy. They listened more than they spoke. What they learned sparked the realization that a more efficient incubator wasn’t enough–they needed to rethink the entire product. Listening with both their ears and eyes led to the short-list of design constraints above. Second, the students were stubborn and refused to negotiate on any of the requirements.

The Importance of Being Unreasonable

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in adapting the world to himself.  – George Barnard Shaw
