Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin. One of the groups facing the highest unemployment rate in the United States is those who are formerly incarcerated. Richard Bronson, who served two years in prison for securities violations in the 90s, has launched a venture he calls 70 Million Jobs. You see, there are about 70 million formerly incarcerated Americans. That represents about one in every three adults. Richard sees this not only as a problem but as an opportunity. He launched his for-profit enterprise to act as a placement agent for this marginalized population. Now, Richard is raising money for the venture on equity crowdfunding site Wefunder using Title III of the 2012 JOBS Act. Virtually anyone can invest.
