WHAT WOULD YOU CREATE FOR CHARLOTTESVILLE WITH $10,000?
Creatives pitch. Judges critique. YOU decide!
Get ready, on Thursday April 11, the Batten Institute at the Darden School of Business launches the Tom Tom festival with a crowd-sourced pitch night for creative artists, entrepreneurs of any kind, innovators, amateurs, professionals and enthusiasts. Come hear the next big idea in Charlottesville!
Everyone chips in $10, which buys entry and a vote to cast toward the winning idea. You'll hear 10 quality ideas that need funding and the crowd decides who they want to support.
This all takes place at the ground-breaking i.Lab at U.Va, a unique community-facing incubator that is pioneering how business schools can interact with the community and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in a City.
The pitches represent all Charlottesville and folks doing cool, innovative things here, and need that live kick-start to make things happen!
