People with alcohol problems go to the AA. Others who suffer from obesitas go to the Weight Watchers. All those people have the same goal in mind. They want to find support in their attempts to be and keep on being sober or losing weight. And the particular thing is that it works for a large part of the people who voluntarily join these associations. ACE is pretty much the same but for creatives and entrepreneurs. These people are very outspoken but when it comes to dealing with (vanity) problems, they are mostly very alone in their thinking. ACE would be a Anonymous group of Creatives and Entrepreneurs who need to have some support in their personal life.
Prison Entrepreneurship Program.
Thugs and thieves are some kind of entrepreneurs. I am a firm believer of people taking the faith in their own hands and creating a future for themselves. That’s why I think it’s not such a bad idea to start prison entrepreneurship programs. Dealers and healers appear to be great salesmen, others have a talent for organising logistics and distribution channels, and some others do miracles with finances… It seems to me that if these people want to get a decent chance in society after they are released and regained freedom, the best way is to take matter into own hands. No job interviews where they will be refused because of their criminal record… As founders of a company, their past doesn’t really matter. It’s all about the things they are going to do. They can prepare and start their business from prison. Maybe a prison VC fund can support this…
