Inmate to Entrepreneur

Joanna and John With the men of the Last Mile

The Last Mile:

Could the next Mark Zuckerberg be sitting in a California prison?

The participants of a pioneering initiative at San Quentin correctional facility certainly hope so.

The Last Mile program at San Quentin aims to educate inmates about social media, technology and entrepreneurship.

Each must develop a business idea that combines technology with a good cause and eventually pitch it to an audience of Silicon Valley bosses and executives.

The catch? They can’t use the internet (and many of them never have).
