About the Synergy Scholarship

Empowering LGBTQ+ youth pursuing entrepreneurial careers

While many students dream of obtaining a college degree, life can sometimes get in the way and we believe every young person deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her dream, no matter the circumstance. This year, we expanded our support of LGBTQ+ youth with the launch of the Synergy Scholarship, a $250,000 commitment over the next five years to empower educational opportunities within this community.

 

Inspired by Founder and CEO, GT Dave’s journey as a gay entrepreneur and businessman, we will uplift diverse peoples and support ambitious youth in pursuit of entrepreneurial careers as they embark on their professional journey.


Founder & CEO, GT Dave

Founder and CEO, GT Dave was a teenage entrepreneur and is a mentor for future entrepreneurial youth. As a pioneer in the health and wellness movement and the creator of an iconic brand that has earned him the moniker "Kombucha King," GT began his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 15 years old.

 

Struggling with the woes of starting a business, GT was also growing up as a gay man and exploring his identity. Through strength and perseverance, he channeled his creativity and unique point of view into the company that today holds leading rank as the #1 kombucha brand in the world.

“Change begins within our generation’s youth, and that’s why it is so important we empower them to follow their dreams and achieve their full potential...”

“As a gay entrepreneur, I have experienced first-hand the personal and professional challenges associated with being a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Through the Synergy Scholarship, I hope to support and encourage this group to create their own path and realize their entrepreneurial dreams.”
