Building a Venture Funded Startup after a Four Year Prison Sentence with Frederick Hutson

Launched and sold his first business by age 19 while on active duty in the Air Force, indicted at age 23 for trafficking marijuana. A serial entrepreneur and natural born hustler, Frederick joins us to talk about his lessons from four years in federal prison and the business he built from behind bars.

  • How do we avoid misguided ambition?
  • What does the process of self discovery look like?
  • How do we find our own vehicle to express our talents?
  • How do we cultivate the ability to recognize opportunity?
  • The difference between how you feel and what you know
  • How prison teaches you to live by your word
  • Why isolation in prison hurts re-integration and rehabilitation
