I was first introduced to Defy Ventures and their mission at FounderCon, the Techstars global annual conference that was held in Cincinnati in October of 2016. The mission resonated with me deeply and I keep track of what they’re doing.
Defy Ventures is an entrepreneurship, employment, and character development training program for currently and formerly incarcerated men, women, and youth.
Watch the VR 360 video below, learn, be in awe. They have nearly ZERO recidivism by the participants in the program, who go on to build awesome business trajectories and pay it back in their communities after release.
