The Inc. to Inc. leadership team understands what it means to grow up with limited opportunities, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, only to accomplish what some deemed impossible. They’ve dedicated their lives to making sure impossible dreams become reality by advocating for the power of a Second Chance.
Damon Thrash is the Founder/President of Inc. to Inc. Entresition Services and its initial proof of concept. At the height of the Crack epidemic, Damon grew up in an extremely impoverished and dangerous housing project in Pensacola, Florida. At the age of nine Damon was introduced to the fast money of illicit drug sales. Fourteen years later, during what most would consider an extremely successful run in the drug game, Damon was abruptly arrested and sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking and distribution of cocaine. While serving his time Damon realized that there would be no opportunity for a second chance to positively change his life and the lives of others unless he created one. Through his renewed faith, passion for entrepreneurship and rebuilding his community Inc. to Inc. and Hustle Smarter was born.
