Default Programs for ex-felon entrepreneurs

I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but, one topic that comes up frequently in discussions with my husband is opportunities for employment post release. It's a ways off, given his sentence, but something we think about.

We've come to the conclusion that his record will be seriously problematic. However, he is brilliant with advanced degrees in engineering and finance. He sees a lot of wasted human capital behind bars and would like to do something to provide opportunities for those with a record.

I would be willing to back these initiatives. Perhaps there are agencies that would endorse this and provide support.

Where to start? I dunno, just thinking out loud at this point.
