Correctional Training Facility (CTF) hosted Defy Ventures Business Coaching Day for entrepreneurs-in-training (EIT). Defy Ventures put on their well-known Business Coaching Day, bringing together over 50 EITs and 30 volunteer business leaders. The day focused on business ideas, personal growth, shared stories, and forging a brighter future.
The event’s diverse activities all embodied entrepreneurship. EITs investigated the depths of their resumes and told their personal life stories. These efforts went towards discussing the unique customer problems their business ideas aim to tackle.
