Event description
Come hear about brand-new startup businesses aiming to reduce incarceration and recidivism.

About this Event

Last month, a panel of speakers discussed their lived experiences related to incarceration, recidivism, rehabilitation, and expungement. Then, we asked the community to come up with innovative solutions to these problems. For the past few weeks, several teams have been working on developing innovative and marketable products and services to address these problems. In this showcase, teams will present on their progress!
