Scott Wesley - Control Alt Delete

PEP Graduate Scott Wesley, winner of the 2014 FastPitch competition

Yesterday, before a crowd of 120 people at the River Oaks Country Club yesterday, the Prison Entrepreneurship Program hosted our first “free-world” Business Plan Competition.

The event featured amazing presentations by three PEP graduates:

  • Clarence Campbell, “The Shine King” (shoe shining and leather care)
  • Steve Gutterud, “Complete Home Innovations” (home renovation and remodeling)
  • Scott Wesley, “Control-Alt-Delete” (tattoo removal)

After a very tough competition, our audience chose the winner …. Control-Alt-Delete, a tattoo removal service that allows people to overcome “tattoo regret” by taking CONTROL of their lives, ALTERING the way they are perceived by the world (and themselves) and DELETING their old tattoos!

Clarence Campbell (The Shine King)

Scott Wesley (Control-Alt-Delete)

We had nearly twenty semi-finalists compete in pitch contests over the past few weeks. We were honestly astounded by the intensity of the competition and the quality of the pitches … this was an incredibly difficult choice. Many of the pitches were ready for investments, and we look forward to working with ALL of you to build your businesses.
