On Sunday, Startup Weekend Stamford announced the winners of this year’s event after a long, grueling, and, of course, fun weekend. Without further ado, here are the champions of this 54-hr frenzy (and what they won):
- FIRST PLACE: ArtGoGo, a mobile application and website to support emerging contemporary artists in promoting their work and gaining exposure outside of the gallery system. It also provides non-artist users with the opportunity to discover and engage with new artists.
- SECOND PLACE: Secure Your Own Device, a website and mobile app hoping to bring to life a new paradigm beyond the idea of ‘Manage Your Own Device’
- THIRD PLACE: Books About Us (which later changed their name to Mirror Books) customized digital and print-based books that give children an interactive and personalized experience while learning to read
- HONORABLE MENTION: CartWheel, software that will allow employers to receive a referral fee for each sale originating at their workplace to help offset the un-productivity from their employees
There were some pretty darn amazing pitches on Sunday night and all 11 teams deserve a huge round of applause.
