ABSTRACT. Social entrepreneurs identify and solve social problems on a large scale, acting as the change agents for society. They look for new approaches and advance sustainable solutions that create social value. America has the highest incarceration rates in the world. Women, the fastest growing inmate group, have reentry issues that differ from those of men. This paper applies Guclu, Dees, and Anderson’s model of Social Entrepreneurship Creation to the development of an innovative program created to prepare these female inmates with entrepreneurial training while helping them to attain the necessary life skills to have a successful reentry experience, thus beginning a cycle of prosperity in their communities. pp. 3-14
