Prisoners are assets for a state that can add economic value to the state. There is a growing movement of preparing offenders for returning to communities as it’s a demanding task for ex-prisoners. Applying a framework of entrepreneurial training on inmates will lead to human resource management as employment affects recidivism and self-employment is sustainable. A conceptual framework based on extensive literature is proposed to understand the effect of entrepreneurial training on prisoners. Entrepreneurial training affects entrepreneurial self-efficacy leading to a domino effect on perceived behavioral control and chances of venture creation. This effect is mediated by the strengthening of entrepreneurial resilience. Additionally, gender also affects the perceiving of entrepreneurial training. This framework aids in establishing understanding at the theoretical level as well as can be adopted empirically. This will contribute towards a better judicial system that fosters less burden on the state.
