Flikshop: The Tech Startup Sending Postcards to Prison

Flikshop: The Tech Startup Sending Postcards to Prison

After going to prison at age 15, founder Marcus Bullock understood the value of human connection. He created Flikshop, an app that sends postcards to people behind bars, to help families keep in touch with their loved ones and, in turn, fight recidivism and keep former inmates from going back to prison. Bullock soon found ways to scale his tech startup by hiring a full team and offering new in-demand services.
