This half-day event has been developed to give individuals with any criminal background an overview of the essential elements of starting and running a low-capital (<$1,000) business. The event will be led by Inmates to Entrepreneurs founder and tech entrepreneur Brian Hamilton and Inmates to Entrepreneurs co-chair AJ Ware, who have taught thousands of people how to start their own small businesses. This is a practical, no nonsense, and direct course that covers the very basics of starting a company, such as the type of company to start all the way through servicing customers and, more importantly, making a profit.
There is a $25 fee for the event and all proceeds will be donated to an Atlanta nonprofit organization. A free breakfast, plus snacks and beverages, will be served. Free parking is provided. All attendees will receive an Inmates to Entrepreneurs swag bag. Come as you are - there is no dress code.
By the end of the event, you will have the basics for starting a business and beginning your new entrepreneurial life. Learn from people who have been exactly where you are and who have become successful.
Eligibility Requirements: The only requirement to attend the course is that you have had a criminal charge against you or you have been incarcerated.
