Inmates to Entrepreneurs

#SecondChances Conference in Atlanta

January 26, 2019

 

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 business. The conference 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 conference 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.
