The Galant Challenge is an annual event that catalyzes U.Va.’s entrepreneurial spirit with spirited competition and high stakes. Checkbooks come out as student teams try to convince a panel of investors -- and a public audience -- that they deserve up to a quarter of a million dollars in capital to launch their business.

So what’s with the “wildcard”? The Galant Challenge judges pick two of the semifinalists, but the crowd in attendance picks the third. All three teams go on to the Challenge finals, where they will land as much as $250,000 in seed money for their venture.
