KCSW #8 Wrap Up


Last weekend’s KC event brought many ideas to life. From wearable technology to a startup sales force, the businesses generated were some of the most diverse KCSW has ever seen.

After the long, sleepless weekend four teams were awarded our prizes.


1st place went to Pijjin- the social game that helps lost pijjins find their way home. @PijjinApp

2nd went to EqueSmart- the carfax for horses. Where horse records are stored so owners and doctors have records in one place. @EqueSmart

3rd place went to Pearing- the photo-dating mobile app to break the ice using Instagram. @pearingapp

Our Crowd Favorite winner was Harp Health. Harp Health connects first responders to doctors with real time video conferencing using Google Glass. Faster acute care that saves lives. @HarpHealth
