The Story Behind
Stock Market Tracks



Wu-Tang weren’t playing when they said “Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me.”


But what happens when you get the money (dollar dollar bill, y’all)? Not enough of you are investing it. Only 23 percent of Americans aged 18 to 37 think the stock market is the best place for money they won’t need for 10 years or more.


That fact is the inspiration for Stock Market Tracks, a collaboration between NYC-based youth organization STEAM16 and Invstr, the leading investment education app.


We want to get young people learning and talking about investing and the stock market by scribbling lyrics and spitting rhymes. The competition is about financial literacy and freedom of expression. Education through entertainment. Grab your phone and show us you’ve got the lyrical chops and the thirst for knowledge to snatch that prize.
