A company dedicated to helping young entrepreneurs in the making find their full potential through life experiences, education and entrepreneurship, TUGG (Technology Underwriting the Greater Good) works to “source, screen and fund social innovation”. Part of their goal is to enable both individuals and their communities to solve important issues. In other words, TUGG works to “fund the riskiest startups and help them become market success for social innovation”.
Almost 10 years ago, a number of young entrepreneurs met over wine in support of YearUp. They brainstormed different ways to get both the tech communities and social organizations together to raise money to support some incredible non-profits. They blended the meeting over wine with tequila in hopes of reaching an audience of all ages and made it into TUGG’S Wine & Tequila Party. It has since been a success with a large turnout year after year.
This year, SmartBooks is sponsoring the 9th Annual Wine & Tequila Party on April 16th. The event will start at 6:30pm and go until midnight. Come enjoy top-shelf tequila and wine as we raise $400K+ to support six local nonprofits. Click here to get tickets!
