Meet responsible entrepreneur, chef and founder Chad Houser on his journey to launch and scale Cafe Momentum. They provide a transformative experience through a paid internship program and curriculum for helping justice-involved youth, ages 15–19 step out of recidivism as young folks are increasingly boomeranging back into incarceration. Cafe Momentum has broken that cycle by helping interns see the bigger picture – rotating through all aspects of the restaurant experience, focusing on life and social skills, coaching and development. Café Momentum’s flagship location in Dallas, Texas, opened in 2015 with recent expansions into Nashville and Pittsburgh.
This session will also feature a moderated panel of local entrepreneurs and a UNM expert.
