The US has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. And although overall spending on prisons continues to rise, the budget for prisoner education has shrunk. Studies by The Rand Corporation report that the rate of return on investment in prison education is high, claiming that for every USD 1 spent, USD 4 or 5 is saved in connection with the costs involved in reoffending. Combine this with the statistic that education while incarcerated reduces recidivism by 43% and there is a very clear business case for our next innovation. Edovo is an education startup that supplies prisons with tablets through which they can access academic resources and content that will help them prepare for life on the outside.
