The Challenge

Introducing UnGrounded: a hack at 30,000 feet.

In some places in the world, an entire generation of brilliant minds don’t have the opportunities or partnerships they need. In other places, there are more opportunities than qualified people. It’s called the “global misalignment of talent.”
DNA was proud to partner with British Airways to help tackle this problem.

100 of the most forward-thinking founders, CEOs, venture capitalists, and Silicon Valley game-changers were invited on a world changing flight from San Francisco to London.

On board, they did what they do best—innovate and collaborate to find an effective solution to this growing global challenge.

Once back on land, the best ideas were presented to British Prime Minister David Cameron and UN ITU Secretary General Dr Hamadoun Toure.

The Result

The sky is not the limit!
The UnGrounded experience is over, but the impact is only beginning. Watch this film to learn more about the challenges, see the highlights of this once in a lifetime experience, and meet the minds behind one of the most groundbreaking flights in recent history.
