The Tom Tom Founders Festival nominated 18 local founders out of a pool of 120 to represent the "Founding Charlottesville Celebration". This group of people includes artists, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs.
"Tom Tom came up with a great idea to get the word out about people that found organizations here, and also the fact that Charlottesville is a place that really supports new ideas," said Kate Collier, founder of the Local Food Hub.
Each founder will be publicly recognized at a ceremony during the fall block party, which will be held on September 26th.
