SkyHive Selected for Unreasonable FUTURE, a First Annual Initiative to Help Redesign Workplaces of Tomorrow
SkyHive will join 15 additional ventures from around the world in a multi-year collaboration to help align the future of work with social equity.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia. Tuesday, March 12, 2019 — After a rigorous selection process involving hundreds of companies across the globe, SkyHive has been selected to join 15 growth-stage ventures in the initial Unreasonable FUTURE program. Unreasonable FUTURE is a bold multi-year initiative that will bring together disruptive innovators and entrepreneurs to design a future in which people and technology work side-by-side to solve workplace challenges and unlock human potential everywhere.
The first annual cohort of ventures will include companies creating the future of learning and up-skilling, so underserved youth and those whose jobs are being replaced by technology will find pathways to new opportunities in the digital era. The portfolio also includes entrepreneurs using disruptive technologies to maximize human potential in the workplace of tomorrow. By bringing them together, the goal is to rewrite the narrative of what it means for all humans to thrive in a new, more equitable economy.
SkyHive is an artificial intelligence technology that deepens our understanding of labour markets, workforces and individuals, enabling new ways of acquiring, developing and engaging talent.

SkyHive addresses this challenge by leveraging its exponential technology to collaborate with private sectors, governments, and academics to facilitate labour market transformation, promote lifelong learning and create a future of work that is prosperous for all.
“Unreasonable FUTURE is bringing together a hand-picked portfolio of entrepreneurs leveraging advanced technologies to ensure future generations thrive in the new economy,” Daniel Epstein, founder and CEO of Unreasonable Group said. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to support these outstanding ventures to help design a future that will work for everyone.”
