2016 Galant Challenge
April 15, 2016
The 2016 Galant Challenge opened the door for three promising entrepreneurial ventures, all founded by members of the UVA community, to access nearly $1.5 million in potential capital.
The Challenge, held April 15, 2016, at Charlottesville’s Paramount Theater, occurred alongside the student-oriented UVA Entrepreneurship Cup and in conjunction with the week-long, innovation-oriented Tom Tom Founders Festival.
Ventures participating in the 2016 Challenge event included Contraline, a non-surgical, non-hormonal, reversible male contraceptive; Social SafeGuard, a software platform designed to help protect individuals and organizations from malicious threats online—such as malware, spam, and fraud—that are often delivered via social media; and TypeZero, developers of the inControl Diabetes Management Platform.
