To wrap up our coverage of Startup Weekend Des Moines, we've edited down our video of Sunday's three-hour final pitch session to an hour and fifteen minutes, presenting all 16 team pitches and the award ceremony to top it off.
Here are winners of the weekend, as selected by judges Ben Milne of Dwolla, Mike Colwell of Business Innovation Zone, Milt Milloy of Springboard Consulting & Capital, and Tej Dhawan and Christian Renaud of StartupCity Des Moines on the criteria of business model, customer validation and execution:
- doodle cloud. An iPhone and iPad app that allows children to snap a photo of a cloud, draw and decorate it with stickers, then send it to loved ones.
- myKitchenGenie. A reverse recipe app that gives you meal suggestions based on the ingredients already in your home.
- Roadrageo.us. A web app that allows you to leave “rage tickets” for bad drivers based on their license plate numbers.
