Something we talk a lot about here at VentureLab is how to make entrepreneurship a viable and realistic path for everyone. One of the ways we are excited to see this happen is through the support of founders who have been historically under served or excluded from the traditional methods for funding and networking.
This week we want to spotlight one of the programs doing an amazing job of this in the Southeast and giving us all inspiration.
REEP is an entrepreneurship program, run by City Startup Labs, focuses on providing education and resources to formerly incarcerated individuals to make entrepreneurship a path for employment. City Startup Labs recently received a $37K grant for the REEP program due to the success they've had thus far.
