Dave’s Killer Bread Co-Founder Invests in Rising Prison Education Startup

It’s rare enough for any entrepreneur to lead a company to a $275 million sale—in cash. The odds are significantly slimmer when that person is a convicted felon who previously served 15 years in prison. But that’s how much Dave Dahl sold his family company, Dave’s Killer Bread, for in 2015. Today, it claims to be the largest organic bread company in America. And as much as that has put him in the spotlight as the exceptional prison success story, he doesn’t want to be the only one. Since then, he has volunteered to help formerly incarcerated people get back on track through training and job placement programs. His latest effort involves a $250,000 investment in Nucleos, a startup trying to make online educational and vocational programs more accessible to those behind bars. He learned about it when the company reached out to him last November.
