Entrepreneurs in the UVA community:
Pitch for up to $1 million in the Seventh Annual Galant Challenge

Entrepreneurs in the UVA community are invited to register for the Galant Challenge, one of UVA's premier startup events connecting select UVA-affiliated seed- and early-stage ventures with potential investors.
Join us!

Who: UVA students, faculty, staff, and alumni who are founders or members of the startup’s management team are all eligible to apply.

What: A minimum of three teams will be selected to present live at the Seventh Annual Galant Challenge.

When/Where: This year's Galant Challenge will be held the evening of Thursday, April 25, at UVA's McIntire School of Commerce in Room 120.

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. Each submission should also be accompanied by a one minute "elevator pitch” video; cell phone footage is perfectly appropriate. The submission deadline for the Galant Challenge is Tuesday, April 2. Email submissions to galantchallenge@comm.virginia.edu
