The Last Mile


Montana Premiere

The Last Mile is a tech incubator founded inside San Quentin, California’s oldest men’s prison. The program teaches inmates entrepreneurship skills with the goal of having each participant found a company that addresses a social issue and includes a technology component - without any access to computers and the Internet. Many of these men have never used a laptop or smartphone, as they’ve been incarcerated for two decades. Award-winning filmmaker, Ondi Timoner, follows their journey as they struggle to craft a business plan, pitch their ideas in front of a live audience of venture capitalists at Demo Day, and then reenter society.
