PACMapper, a tool that would let nursing homes, home health agencies and hospice services better assess geographic market viability, won second prize.
The event, at Madison Area Technical College's west campus, drew more than 100 people who pitched 61 new business ideas, then worked on developing 15 of them.
It was the first event of its kind in Wisconsin. Startup Weekends have been held around the U.S. and worldwide.
For Startup Weekend Madison, leaders from UW-Madison, Madison Area Technical College, Edgewood College, Capital Entrepreneurs and Sector67 organized the event.
Startup Weekend is part of Capital Entrepreneurs Week in Madison.
A program similar to Startup Weekend, 3 Day Startup Madison, will be held this coming weekend, May 4-6, and is aimed at commercializing technology by UW-Madison students.
