A Shared Vision of Impact

The Un.Inc is a wholehearted and visionary company, born from pain. We design and deliver products, self-guided programs, events, intentional spaces and housing for changemakers. Our passion is empowering women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community who are intentional about the impact they want to make through for-profit ventures. The first of it's kind, this entrepreneur-focused company launched in fall 2016 and has come to life through the collaboration and shared vision of Austin social entrepreneurs Liz Deering and Ben Gibson

LIZ DEERING

Co-Founder, CEO & Dreamcatcher, The Un.Inc

I'm passionate about creating safe spaces for people to find their voice, connect with their purpose and pursue their dreams. The Un.Inc is the space and community I wished for when I began my journey as an entrepreneur. I believe we all need that, especially at the very beginning of a dream or idea. It takes so much courage to step out, break the norm, create your own vision. So often we are surrounded by people who love us but don't understand the path we're on, and can't provide that type of support. 

I envision a future where the Un.Inc has grown to support changemakers all over the country, and whether you are just starting your journey or decades into it, you know you can get the inspiration, support, and accountability you need to keep going. 

I believe our culture needs to fundamentally shift to empower changemakers from diverse backgrounds, all genders, ages, races and sexual orientations. Because you are the hope, the ones with the solutions that will impact the world. It's an honor to facilitate, host, connect worlds, and hold this space. I can't imagine doing anything else.  

Here's to the heartfelt ones,

BEN GIBSON

Co-Founder & Dreamweaver, The Un.Inc

I imagine a world where the earliest stage dreamers are championed, the ones who boldy speak the truth and want to change the world. Where society and systems dont opress creativity and the freedom to pursue our wildest dreams. Where it's affordable to maintain a life while pursuing your passion and honing your craft. Where a dreamer can walk into a space or community and feel inspired by others just like them and get all the help and assistance they need to get started.

I have committed my life to being an example to all the dreamers out there who long for a different life. To show everyone that it can be different. That humanity can live a life purposefully, passionately and still make great money. And that it's possible that our generations change the trajectory of the world's future through impact businesses.

Every day in our business I have the honor of working alongside dreamers of all kinds. I get to believe in them when nobody else will. Because in the very very beginning of a dream., we all need that.

Keep Dreaming Dreamer,

Meet the Mentors

The Un.Incubator would not be the nourishing and educational space it is without the support of these talented and impact minded leaders who volunteer their time to empower and encourage the cohorts.


I so enjoyed my time with Liz, Ben and members of both cohorts that not only would I like to participate again, but slept on Un.Incubator’s front porch until they let me in and signed me up as a mentor for the summer cohort.
