The Centre for Entrepreneurs (www.centreforentrepreneurs.org) is currently conducting researching into ex-offender entrepreneurship.
Finding employment is a major struggle for people with criminal records, despite the fact that a job offers them the best chance of avoiding reoffending. But many ex-offenders have entrepreneurial strengths that make self-employment and entrepreneurship a viable alternative path to self-sufficiency.
Good quality mentoring and advice are instrumental factors in getting a business off the ground. This is especially true for ex-offender entrepreneurs, who often lack the skills, knowledge and networks – though not the ambition – that many take for granted.
The Centre for Entrepreneurs want to explore how open Britain’s entrepreneurs are to mentoring aspiring ex-offender entrepreneurs through this questionnaire: http://goo.gl/forms/6g1c8ux4Mx
The information collected will remain 100% confidential. The results of the survey will feed directly into a written report by the Centre for Entrepreneurs, to be released later this year.
