Teju Ravilochan will be the Keynote Motivational Speaker at Denver Online High School’s Planning for Success, College and Career Readiness Event. The event will be held on Saturday, February 10th at Manual High School. Check in begins at 8:30am.
Teju is co-founder and CEO of Uncharted (formerly Unreasonable Institute), which he started immediately after college with Tyler Hartung and Daniel Epstein. Before Uncharted, he spent nearly a year as executive assistant to Paul Polak, founder of iDE, which has impacted over 20 million people. He conducted university-funded research (via the University of Colorado) to learn about the effectiveness of NGOs in tackling rural poverty, which deeply inspired his passion for Unreasonable’s mission. He is a Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur, an Inc. 30 under 30 entrepreneur, and a TEDx speaker. His family hails from India. And he was born in Cleveland. So we like to joke that he’s a Cleveland Indian.

People’s courage to move forward when the chances of success seem so low inspires me.
I try to keep a running list of 15-20 bad dad jokes memorized, for deployment at any moment.
