Amplify Week 5: A Conversation with Austin Martin ’17, founder & CEO of Rhymes with Reason
August 12, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
After Austin Martin ’17 (Brown U) discovered that 67 of the top 100 SAT words could be found in recognizable hip-hop songs, he knew he could leverage the genre’s lyrics to teach literacy and vocabulary in 100-plus education programs. That’s why he started Rhymes with Reason (RWR) while an undergraduate at Brown, an online platform that allows students to study vocabulary words and more through hip-hop music. Among Martin’s collaborators is musical artist Chance the Rapper’s SocialWorks, which teamed up with RWR to make the Chicago Learning Playlist for 1,000+ students.
Join Brown EP and Spelman College’s Entrepreneurship Club for a conversation with Austin to learn more about his venture and entrepreneurial journey this Wednesday, August 12 at 8 pm EST.
