We are teaming up with gener8tor in Milwaukee to launch a month-long program to eventually bring to market new business ideas on how to prevent recidivism.

Last week, nearly 100 people from all over the city got together at the Sherman Phoenix venue to brainstorm ideas, get into work groups and start the process of building a successful company.

“Everybody has a lived experience around this issue,” said Nyra Jordan, Social Impact Investment Director. “(You asked) Why Milwaukee? I believe the ideas are there. The innovation is there. I think the solutions are there.”

Here’s a look at Wednesday’s event and we’ll follow up when the program’s completed to show you what these passionate and purpose-driven individuals have created.
