2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Social Mobility Project Award
Zero Gravity is a tech start-up driven by the vision that talent is spread evenly, but opportunity is not. They’re changing this by driving social mobility at an unprecedented scale across the UK. Zero Gravity empowers students from low-opportunity backgrounds to defy the odds, mentoring them to top universities and further propelling them into high-flying careers. They harness the power of technology to democratise access to opportunity, shattering barriers of background, geography and network to ensure wherever talent is, opportunity will follow. Since their launch, Zero Gravity have supported 8,000+ socially mobile students into top universities through three key components; mentoring, masterclasses and a managed community, all housed within their proprietary tech platform. Zero Gravity have forged a transformational partnership with HSBC to open up a world of opportunity for socially mobile students.
