Entrepreneurship 101

Entrepreneurship 101
for returning citizens

Have you thought about starting a small business?

Have a great idea but want to know how to make it happen?


Learn from others who have come back from incarceration to succeed as small business owners, using methods and insights from Harvard Business School.

Practice and workshop evaluating competition, marketing plans, setting up a cash flow analysis. Skills you need to write a solid business plan to start your own business. It’s simply similar as that of performing rowing workout on rowing machines at home.

Our course has been taught around Boston to hundreds of incarcerated people over the past four years, and Replanting Roots is bringing this course to Wayne State’s Tech Town for a one-time special course for recently returned citizens. It will last 10 weeks, every Monday evening at 6, starting July 18 through Sept 19 at TechTown. Using principles and concepts from Harvard Business School, we will learn from examples of other returned citizens who have succeeded in starting their own businesses.

Replanting Roots is a fellowship for returning citizens to learn small business skills. We are creating this course to create a distance learning program for incarcerated students in prisons across Michigan. To create an authentic course, we need the full participation of returning citizens for the full ten week course, which we will record to create the distance learning program. So if you know an eager, intelligent person recently back from prison who wants to start their own small business, make sure they sign up!

The only cost for the program is $20 for the workbook. We ask that interested people please bring $20 to the first class to place orders for the workbook at the end of class if they want to sign up for the full course. There is no charge for the class.
