FBIIB FBIIB supports and spotlights the many men & wo­men who - despite serving time in prison - are now the amazing success-stories that we rarely hear about.

FBIIB Inc. is a reentry and media organization that supports and spotlights the success stories of men and women who served time in prison, came home with a plan, and are empowering themselves socially and financially. Our debut program, the New~Gen Production House, is a NYC-based, 12-Session, production workshop to train at-risk-youth (16 to 24) to envision, organize, film, edit, and publish compelling media content through HD video. Along with some behind-the-scenes footage of our students, their projects will help shape each of the seasonal episodes of our docu-series, From Bars II Beyond. Our aim to be a source of inspiration and awareness to young people whose creative potential can be developed as a source of empowerment that transcends expectations.

Mission: FBIIB seeks be a source of inspiration and awareness to those (particularly our youth) who need to transcend the expectations set by our criminal justice statistics, while helping to reshape the stereotypical image of the millions who were criminal justice involved.

Defy Ventures

From prison jumpsuits to tailored business suits... We already KNOW what works... we just now need to DO what works.

Defy's "inside-out" solution to America's problems of mass incarceration and recidivism allows us to journey with our men and women from serving their prison sentence to economic independence. Take Gregory Bonds, who went from being homeless after prison to becoming the Founder & CEO of Project-Tradeshow. Gregory generated $80K in revenue in his first year and won a $15K first place prize in our “Shark Tank” competition just months ago. Through partnerships with groups like Stand Together, we're unleashing the power of community to transform the futures (and hustle!) of men like Gregory and thousands of others with criminal histories. Join our movement today! #TransformYourHustle
