2021 Partner: Gray Matter Experience
ABOUT GRAY MATTER: Gray Matter is an entrepreneurial experience program for high school students across the city of Chicago. The program consists of a series of engaging workshops comprised of team building activities, group and individual tasks, discussions, guest speakers, and fun and engaging field trips.
Participating students learn business concepts from entrepreneurs and professionals and then use that knowledge to create businesses to help impact communities on the South and West sides of the city. Students are encouraged to launch their businesses and will be placed in relevant internships and mentorships to ensure their success.
Gray Matter aims to educate, empower and assist students in creating their own businesses while providing them access to resources and support to ensure students understand that their ideas are valid and vital to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
