Defy Ventures is a character development, job readiness and entrepreneurial training program. I dont know of any program that believes more wholeheartedly than Defy that entrepreneurship is a useful tool to reduce recidivism.

That’s why I am so excited to bring to you today my conversation with Jeremy Bouman, the executive director of Defy Ventures Nebraska:

Defy has created a path to entrepreneurial success, starting when folks are incarcerated and ramping up once they’re released.

But more importantly, Defy has helped hundreds of incarcerated people gain confidence in their ability to make the world a better place. And helped anyone who has seen their success believe in the power for good that is too often locked up behind bars, and inside of each of us.
