Zero Gravity

Talent is spread evenly, but opportunity is not. We’re changing that so low-income students can land the future they didn’t think possible.

We unlock potential through the power of membership. Together, we propel the most ambitious students into uni, work and life.

Our mentoring and masterclasses are the inside track on reaching the best universities and careers. Our members are the motivation to get there – daring the next generation to do the same. And our tech does it all at speed and at scale.
