Watch: Prison Inmates Build Start-Up Companies Through “The Last Mile” Program
A programs called “The Last Mile” teaches prison inmates about technology using books, videos, and tech mentors such as MC Hammer and Guy Kawasaki.
And we’re not just talking about learning how to send an email or download a .pdf file. Some of the prisoners recently participated in a start-up demo day, where the inmate entrepreneurs pitch their start-up ideas. They are also crafting business plans for their start-ups.
The pilot program hopes to help inmates catch up with technology that they’ve missed out on while in prison.
