We achieve our education goal by teaching entrepreneurship to those impacted by the penal system. By doing this, we enhance public safety, create new businesses, new jobs, and reduce recidivism in impacted communities. By way of workshops taught both within and outside of prison walls, Tracey Syphax & partner CJ Meenan form Re-Entry Ventures, LLC. Re-Entry Ventures encourages those exiting prison to enter entrepreneurship equipped with 20 valuable lessons and 40 proven and highly-effective concepts. Regardless of method, whether it is behind prison walls with tablets, online, or in person we are delivering on our promise to increase entrepreneurship in the returning citizen population.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER & ADVOCATE
We are committed to leadership with respect to forging a coordinated national response to the systemic impact incarceration has on individuals, their families, and the communities in which they return. We continuously exhibit advocacy in multiple layers and forums including producing quality Podcasts and Documentaries. As a published Author of the book "From The Block To The Boardroom", Tracey inspires by telling his story and the entire team is dedicated to being part of the solution. Fierce advocacy has led to changes in several laws. Our transformational speaking engagements embolden audiences toward a deeper understanding of the issues. This new level of understanding inspires proactive and productive action plans. Returning citizens must be a prevalent voice in the rooms where decisions relating to returning citizens are made. Tracey's keynote speeches result in positive commitments.
Forging collaborative partnerships with local organizations, county, state, and federal agencies are the key ingredient for achieving the reality of success. We support both new individual entrepreneurs as well as companies looking to climb the ladder of success. Whether you are just starting out or looking to scale, having 30 years of business success after incarceration uniquely positions us to be supportive to those looking to build a better business model.
As leaders directly impacted by the penal system, we are committed to creating a holistic approach to positively changing the lives of formerly impacted individuals.
At From the Block to the Boardroom LLC, we are dedicated to advocating for entrepreneurship. We provide resources, opportunities, and education for formerly impacted individuals by utilizing 30 years of success in business to guide others.
