Slice of Lime sponsored Startup Weekend Denver last weekend. Our Founder, Kevin Menzie, participated as a judge as well. It was a true pleasure to witness how a startup moved from a high-level concept on Friday night to, in some cases, a full-fledged working and beautifully designed application by Sunday night.
The judging was tough, as the top three teams came in within just two and a half points from one another (out of a possible 180 point total). The winners were:
- Now & Forever – Easily create wedding websites by tapping into information stored in your Facebook account
- Snap Ranger – Snap geo-targeted photos of animals and win badges. Sell those photos royalty free and give a kick-back to the photographer
- What the #ell is this traffic? – Use historical event data to predict one day in advance when unforeseen traffic will occur
For 10 years Slice of Lime has had a strong connection to the startup community. We’ve worked with many local startups and, these days, can be found sponsoring and mentoring entire organizations dedicated to the startup community such as TechStars and Venture Capital in the Rockies.
It was an honor to be a part of Startup Weekend Denver. Many thanks to Jon Rossi and the other organizers for pulling together such a great event!
