Session Description: The world is rapidly urbanizing, but many of our urban problems are getting worse (transportation, education, waste management, etc). How do you launch a startup to improve city living? How can you overcome the regulatory and legislative challenges that come with launching an urban impact company? Hear case studies and pitches from entrepreneurs currently in the Tumml Program who are developing scalable consumer products and services that solve some of our most pressing urban challenges. We will encourage all visitors to ask questions of these companies as they try to pitch you their ideas and solicit your feedback as you get to understand the urban impact space in better detail!

  • Company Description Tumml is an urban impact accelerator supporting early stage entrepreneurs who are developing innovative consumer products and services to improve urban living. Tumml connects social entrepreneurs with funding, mentors, and a community of people dedicated to urban impact. By targeting “smart cities” sectors like transportation, education, waste management and healthcare, to name a few, we are addressing problems that all citizens care about. Through an extensive application process, we select promising young companies to spend four months working in our offices. During that time, Tumml provides these startup teams with seed funding, a customized curriculum based on their specific needs, legal services, access to top-flight mentors and support staff, as well as opportunities to connect with civic leaders. Our extensive list of mentors and advisors, such as Chief Innovation Officer of San Francisco Jay Nath, Director of Civic Partnerships Molly Turner and Kristen Tobey, co-founder of Revolution food, guide these companies from conception to full-fledged roll out.
