New Identity

Established in 2004, the Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We have pioneered innovative programs that connect the nation’s top executives, entrepreneurs, and MBA students with convicted felons. Our entrepreneurship boot camp and re-entry programs are proven solutions for preventing recidivism, maximizing self-sufficiency and transforming broken lives.

 

Restored Hope

At PEP, we are servant leaders on a mission to transform inmates and executives by unlocking human potential through entrepreneurial passion, education and mentoring. Our success hinges on the execution of this mission and the application of our Ten Driving Values.
