Gray Matter provides an environment and community where Black students, 14-24, can explore business and creative areas within an innovative space - fostering the development of entrepreneurial skills, mindsets, self-agency, and the transferability of these skills and mindsets into school, career, and life.
Young innovators 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. They gain knowledge, access and resources to transform the way they and others view their communities.
