Galant Challenge

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.
