Ralphy Dominguez once ran one of the largest drug rings in New England, making over a million dollars a year. After spending several years in prison, he’s reinvented himself as an entrepreneur at the helm of New York City-based leather goods maker Pen & Pistol, which produces accessories like wallets with a minimalist aesthetic. What started as a leather craft course when Dominguez was behind bars flourished into a promising startup. In both worlds, he says he found something therapeutic and rewarding in working with his hands.

Along the way, they also started their own business. Founded in 2010, the couple’s Brooklyn-based startup Grow and Behold Foods sells kosher OU Glatt pastured beef and poultry from livestock raised on small and sustainable family farms. The social impact company ships its highly specialized cuts to customers who observe kosher dietary guidelines, from the boroughs of New York City and across the nation.
