Project ReMADE is an entrepreneurship training program for formerly incarcerated people. The 12-week program teaches basic business skills to aspiring entrepreneurs and helps them build the social capital necessary to launch and sustain their businesses.
ReMADE entrepreneurs attend bi-weekly classes on topics ranging from accounting and marketing to negotiations and public speaking. Classes are taught by students from Stanford Law School and Stanford Graduate School of Business. In between every class, ReMADE entrepreneurs meet with their mentor teams, who help them develop their individualized written business plans. Mentor teams comprise one Stanford Law School student, one Stanford Graduate School of Business student, and one Silicon Valley professional.
Each year, the program culminates in a completion ceremony held at Stanford Law School. Entrepreneurs present their business plans before a panel of executives from local micro-development organizations, along with an audience of 150 students and invited guests.
