ConConnect was part of 757 Accelerate‘s most recent cohort and has been a favorite since they were accepted into the program. Founded by Andre Peart, ConConnect is a company that has revolutionized the process of reentry by connecting formerly incarcerated people with services instantly. Going through the process himself, Andre recognized the challenges that were leading to high recidivism rates and decided to create a system that would give the formerly incarcerated a real chance at successful re-entry.

ConConnect Director of Operations Daniel Justiniano appeared on episode 126 of the Fervent Four Show. ConConnect also received the Audience Choice award at 757 Accelerate’s Community Pitch Night, which was held earlier in November in conjunction with the Mighty Dream Forum.

Congratulations to Andre, Daniel, and the rest of the ConConnect team!
