Why: The Galant Challenge has connected ventures with more than $2 million in capital! Check out what past winners have to say about how the Challenge impacted their journeys.

How: Each submission should include a short PowerPoint describing your concept in roughly 10 slides. Check out Guy Kawasaki’s 10-20-30 approach.
