Default There's an entrepreneurship program at Monroe

I don't know anyone who's been through it.

As a serial entrepreneur, pitch coach and instructor of entrepreneurship at University of Washington and Edmond Community College, I have had a chance to hear thousands of pitches and assess hundreds of entrepreneurs to speak with power and grow their businesses. Yet it is in prison that I have found my mission - to help the incarcerated tap their startup potential, to start their own companies or make other companies successful as gifted members of their teams.

There's a similar program in at least one Oregon institution called "business in a box" - the idea being that everything needed for the business can fit into one relatively small box and they can start their business on the inside, then take it with them when they release.

No idea how successful it is, but I think it's good to show folks that they can be successful in business, even with very little startup capital.
