Project ReMADE is an entrepreneurship training program for formerly incarcerated people. The 12-week program teaches basic business skills to aspiring entrepreneurs and helps them build the social capital necessary to launch and sustain their businesses.
ReMADE entrepreneurs attend bi-weekly classes on topics ranging from accounting and marketing to negotiations and public speaking. Classes are taught by students from Stanford Law School and Stanford Graduate School of Business. In between every class, ReMADE entrepreneurs meet with their mentor teams, who help them develop their individualized written business plans. Mentor teams comprise one Stanford Law School student, one Stanford Graduate School of Business student and one Silicon Valley professional.
Each year, the program culminates in a completion ceremony held at Stanford Law School. Entrepreneurs present their business plans before a panel of executives from local micro-development organizations, along with an audience of 150 students and invited guests.

Project ReMADE The Other Entrepreneurs
Silicon Valley is one of those special places where people with disparate interests and skills come together—coders and artists, writers and engineers—to build things, to turn dreams into businesses.
An overlooked group with startup ambitions but few resources to make them happen has been teaming up with Stanford students and alumni to learn about entrepreneurship. First conceived by Angela McCray, JD ’13, during her 1L year, Project ReMADE is on a mission to help formerly incarcerated individuals succeed in starting businesses of their own. Now entering its third year, this student initiative has brought together venture capitalists, lawyers, businesspeople, and Stanford Law and GSB students to help some of the most unlikely entrepreneurs achieve their goals.
