Illiteracy is foundational to nearly all the global challenges we face today as an international community. Yet, literacy rates have not improved in over 15 years, costing the world $1.19 trillion a year, and leaving over 750 million people worldwide unable to read this sentence.
Project Literacy Lab, a partnership between Pearson and Unreasonable Group, is a first of its kind, international accelerator focusing on scaling up ventures that are positioned to help close the global literacy gap by 2030. (http://www.projectliteracy.com/lab )

During the 10-day intensive Project Literacy Lab accelerator program, Stones2Milestones will receive mentorship and advice from business experts and serial entrepreneurs, such as Aleem Walji, CEO of the Aga Khan Foundation and Tom Chi, founding team member of Google X.
“Unlike most accelerator programs, we are choosing to align with solutions that have already proven to be effective in market. Now, we’re helping these entrepreneurs scale their ventures,” said Daniel Epstein, founder and CEO of Unreasonable Group.
The program will take place in Connecticut and include two exhibition events in New York City, where Stones2Milestones will showcase their innovation.
