About Us

Learn about who we are! Become familiar with the UR Team and our ambitious group of ambassadors! Feel free to reach out to anyone on the team individually to learn more about what they're doing to spread untraditional success.

Purpose Driven

We are an organization whose mission is to educate and empower unsatisfied and stationary individuals on how to discover and pursue their passion. We seek to change the mindset of traditional success. Our community of visionaries, idealists, entrepreneurs, and activists attempt to lead the unsatisfied by providing resources, sharing wisdom, and promoting a culture of personal growth. In short, we work to promote untraditional success.

What We Believe

01

Purpose

We believe that every person is unique. In society, we are told this at a young age, but as we grow older, we are forced to believe otherwise. If we are truly unique, then everyone has a unique set of skills. A unique perspective. And most importantly, a unique purpose. We wish to put on display individuals who have found success in fulfilling their purpose in an attempt to educate, inspire, and empower a young generation.

02

Educating The

Underpriviledged

In many low-income areas, the idea of success comes in the form of exceptions. Although funds are low, there is no lack of creativity, ingenuity, intelligence, or smartphones. There are a lot of companies and agencies working to increase the number of resources, and we support these actions, but we wish to show these communities what resources are available to them. The number one predictor of success is generational wealth. The number two is grit. Yes, these communities deserve better resources, but while others cut through the red tape, we show the youth what they can be doing now.

03

School Reform

Our school system was simply not created to foster innovation, entrepreneurship, or creativity. There has been a disconnect between the knowledge taught, and the practical application of it. Education is essential, but we advocate for a new approach. We do not wish to discourage formal education but would like to suggest changes backed by real-world examples and a multitude of research. 

04

Social Entrepreneurship

At UR, we are focused on our community fulfilling their purpose more than reaching a certain financial status. Likewise, we believe that businesses have a responsibility to their employees and community as much as they have a responsibility to their shareholders. Even within a capitalist society, social business, entrepreneurship, and enterprise can be used as a way to improve the quality of life for every individual; marginalized or otherwise.
