    TEDxBoston 2012
    From Offender to Entrepreneur Unlikely entrepreneurs-in-training who are determined to create gratifying (and legal) work for themselves

    Curator’s Pick: “Many of them had already run small businesses‚Ķillegal small businesses.”

    This year, about 650,000 people will be released from state and federal prisons, most with no job training and no plan for how they will legally support themselves and their families after their release. Within three years, 68% of them will be re-arrested. Why? Most cannot find legal work. Venturing Out teaches prisoners how to repurpose their street skills and create their own jobs through self-employment.
