About Matthew

Matthew Chan is an undergraduate at the University of Michigan studying Economics and Entrepreneurship. His passion lies at the intersection of leadership, business, and technology. At the age of 13, he designed and published his first mobile application— an education-focused web browser for Android; in high school, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, he co-founded Open-Source Print and Protect— a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that produced and donated over 7000 face shields to essential workers— and led independent fundraising of over $10k as Chief Financial Officer. As a college student, Matthew became the youngest representative elected to Michigan’s Central Student Government (CSG), where he helped pass legislation supporting a university-wide $15 minimum wage, establishment of a DEI committee within CSG, and equitable COVID-19 accommodations for students and faculty; he is also an active member of the university’s Habitat for Humanity chapter, where he serves as VP of Fundraising. 

Why is Gravity’s mission important to you?

“I believe the internet has been weaponized by opportunistic, powerful entities who have exploited it as a mechanism to enrich themselves at the expense of regular people. This profiteering has yielded widespread, devastating consequences— a sobering truth that has become especially apparent to my generation through personal experiences and those of loved ones. With bold, innovative ideas— in conjunction with a capable and passionate team— I believe we are uniquely equipped to counteract these deep-rooted issues.”
