Origins of Zero Six Eight
April 28, 2015
Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes Daniel Bull founder of Zero Six Eight (068), an incubator that works to promote the fully innovative potential of ex-offenders as they pursue goals of employment, entrepreneurship, and independence. Portfolio companies include products and services in Ecommerce, cyber security, medical devices, apparel, and other licensed IP. During the show, Daniel will share inspiration for 068 which came about while Daniel was serving a sentence of 21 months in Elkton Prison (Lisbon, Ohio) for the misappropriation of investor funds. Throughout that time, Daniel experienced the reality of incarceration, discovering that he was surrounded by talented and intelligent individuals who, like him, faced a life of obstacles because of their choices.
