The 12-week course, which our nonprofit Entrepreneurs Unlocked created, educates inmates about the reality of starting a business, culminating with the event, which took place during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
To give ex-prisoners the tools they need to rejoin society and leave a life of crime behind. Sessions include finance training, marketing training, sales planning, and product or service design.
David Morgan, the founder of Entrepreneurs Unlocked, said:
“The Hidden Entrepreneur event is the first to highlight inmates’ entrepreneurial skills. We will draw attention to this career option for individuals since it not only lowers the likelihood of recidivism but also exemplifies the social and financial benefits of entrepreneurship.”
“I am thankful to HMP Thorn Cross for letting us host the event, to our speakers for telling us about their inspiring stories, and to all the businesses who joined us because together, we can change people’s lives by helping them on their new entrepreneurial pathway,” said one of the event speakers.”
