TechKnowledge Supports the Prison Entrepreneurship Program

TechKnowledge Supports the Prison Entrepreneurship Program

Last Sunday, the Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) held their first annual Round Up fundraising event. The support for this program, it’s participants, and it’s efforts continues to be as strong as it’s ever been. The house was packed with supporters including guest speaker NBA Champion head coach and All-Star basketball player, Rudy Tomjanovich. Rudy T also donated autographed items to be auctioned, and we greatly appreciate his support!

PEP has pioneered innovative programs that connect the nation’s top executives, entrepreneurs, and MBA students with convicted felons. Their entrepreneurship features a Business Plan Competition and re-entry programs are proven solutions that deliver a 4 fold reduction in recidivism, maximizing self-sufficiency and transforming broken lives. In short, this program works and improves our communities. TechKnowledge owner, Dave Jacobs, continues to be an advocate for the program. He has served as a mentor for the last three years and sits on the Houston Advisory Board.
