Gray Matter Experience exists to give opportunities to High School students across Chicago to learn about and practice entrepreneurship at an early age. Our students are representative of over 20 Chicago neighborhoods and hope to gain knowledge, access and resources to transform the way they and others view their communities. Students collaborate to develop solutions around problems that plague their communities and use their newfound knowledge gained through The Gray Matter Experience, to help shape their business approach.
These students are becoming well equipped to navigate through our booming technological and entrepreneurial economy. They're learning to use the resources and information gained through the program to catapult their futures to great success. They're learning to be change agents within their communities with the hope of continuing to rebuild and reinvigorate their neighborhoods as they achieve various forms of success. These students are #GMEChangers.
