Can we reduce recidivism by educating inmates to be better entrepreneurs?
Most youth and young adults inside prison walls are serving time for illegal entrepreneurship. By the time they return to society technology has changed the landscape so much it is unrecognizable.
But what if we brought the fast-paced tech-based innovation landscape to the inmates inside the walls of every prison?
What if we introduced inmates to solution-oriented hackathons, coding schools, lean startup techniques?
What if inmates learned how to pitch ideas to investors, crowdfund and channel their talents, interests and passions toward connecting with new groups of people and new opportunities?
What if we got serious about educating inmates about entrepreneurship?
What if "Inside Innovations" were implemented in every state? Would the recidivism rate drop?
It did in Texas.
To less than 10%.
