Prison Tech Boom: Social Outcomes and Entrepreneurs @ Idea Drop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Presesenters from "Prison Tech Boom: Social Outcomes and Entrepreneurs" will be joining us at #IdeaDrop! This session will be live streamed.

An unlikely market has opened, bringing VCs, government agencies, entrepreneurs, civic coders and nonprofits to the table. Prison (or jail) tech is hot and looks to heat up. This session will be moderated by Laurin Hodge, the daughter of a returning citizen and a co-founder of Mission: Launch, which hosts re-entry events to promote civic tech. Hodge invites two returning citizens (a person who has returned back to community after serving time in prison or jail) to talk about their commitment to the prison tech boom as well as their experiences as tech entrepreneurs after "doing time." Best practices on how to build an ecosystem to support unlikely techies will also be shared.
