Maslow Development, Inc.
Instead of building a school within a community, what if we built a community around a school?
Maslow is reimagining how, when, and where learning can happen by designing and developing sustainable community ecosystems. The company plans to identify distressed communities and partner with existing and emerging community-based organizations and industries that will serve as neighborhood anchors.

Youth can and should drive their own learning.
GripTape’s youth leaders are transforming the future of learning for all students by showing what is possible every day when young people have the opportunities and resources to light up their hearts and minds and move themselves forward like never before. GripTape creates the conditions necessary for young people to design, implement, and assess learning experiences outside of school, and in so doing, accelerate achievement and deepen engagement across a wide range of settings.

What if every student knew the power of their own mind, and had the tools and supports to unleash their full potential?
By designing technology that allows lab-based and school-based research to determine whether executive functioning can be improved with direct training, and if that has an impact on real-world outcomes such as academic achievement, Neuroscape seeks to demonstrate that everyone has executive function capacity, and that it can be strengthened based on what you do with it. The goal is for every student, teacher, parent and guardian to know the power of the learning mind, and how to optimize learning for every student.
