70MILLIONJOBS HITS $200k IN REVENUE
Founder Richard Bronson sent out an email recently touting the success of his jobs business for the formerly incarcerated.
“After several years of banging away at getting 70 Million Jobs off the ground, after a seemingly infinite number of investor pitches, after starts and stops and starts again, and after looking out over the precipice of a near-empty bank account, we seem to be having our break-out month.
We’ll finish February with more than $200,000 in revenue—for us, a big number. This revenue has largely been driven by our staffing business, which we introduced a couple of months ago. We recently got a big work order and my amazing team worked late at night and throughout the weekend to find some great people, eager to start immediately.”Richard Bronson
