Our team has over three decades of business and tech development experience. We love designing things that work and support criminal justice reform.
Our Founder, Teresa Hodge, is a national criminal justice advocate and former co-founder of Mission: Launch. While assessing a program applicant for a unique and costly entrepreneurship opportunity she realized the difficulty she was having in determining if this young woman was able to fully take advantage of the $10,000+ opportunity. It was in that moment that she personally was faced with the harsh truth that making decisions about who is risky and who is ready was still difficult – even for her!
This continued to weigh on Teresa and in her spare time, nights and weekends, she began researching solutions. Realizing that there were limited options she engaged a Software Engineer to help her bring her first startup idea to life. As of Q2 2017 she has now invested 1,000+ man hours towards the creation of a tool that balances risk with readiness while removing hidden bias in current algorithms on the market. The R3 Score is currently in the pre-seed development phase.
Teresa and Jon are deeply committed to ensuring likely to hire employers are connected to qualified applicants so that they no longer miss out on millions of dollars due to a shortage of workers.
