With the holidays approaching, we at Tumml wanted to take a moment to thank you for your continued support!

2016 was a big year for our urban innovators. Chariot was acquired by Ford and is now expanding to five cities in 2017. Valor Water Analytics raised a $1.6M seed round, Neighborly announced its Bond Challenge winners, and ArtLifting launched a partnership with Starbucks. Most recently, Hive Lighting absolutely crushed its Kickstarter fundraising goals (raising $329K of a $35K goal with over a week still to go – yes, you read that correctly). 

Collectively, Tumml's 38 startups have created $190M in enterprise value, created 448 community jobs, and impacted 102 major urban areas. 71% of Tumml's startups have a woman or person of color on the founding team.
Tumml recently completed its Tumml Clean Energy Prize, where we supported five awesome startups tackling some of the toughest clean energy challenges in our cities. We hosted a number of community events (a fundraising bootcamp, SPUR panel, etc), and spoke at events/judged pitches everywhere from DC, to Aspen, to Oakland. Tumml and its entrepreneurs have also gotten some great press along the way (in outlets like The Today Show, NBCStanford Social Innovation Review, The San Francisco Business Times, and The Wall Street Journal). 

We're wishing you a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!
