Prison entrepreneurship can break the cycle of reoffending

A report from The Centre for Entrepreneurs called “From inmates to entrepreneurs: how prison entrepreneurship can break the cycle of re-offending” has found that 80% of prisoners are interested in starting their own business. This is compared to about 40% of the general population. The report says “Unlike traditional employment, entrepreneurship does not discriminate on the basis of a criminal record, enabling ex-prisoners to pursue the opportunities best suited to their skillsets, attributes and interests while offering them a more flexible environment in which to reintegrate with society”.
