Thanks to all the participants, coaches, judges, organizers, our speaker and Startup Weekend facilitator who made this event a huge success! 47 participants formed into 8 teams on Friday night, and the final results on Sunday were pretty amazing. Please check out the final pitches on YouTube (courtesy of the Toolshare team) to see the pitches if you haven't already.
Here is a list of our winning teams:
1st Place - Blaze Backcountry
2nd Place - Cards for Dudes
3rd Place - Paul Request
There were 5 other companies that also hustled and built amazing products all weekend:

- Practical Safety Solutions
Teams, if the link to your project is incorrect or missing, please drop us a line with the correct URL to your project and we'll get it updated on our site.
It's important to stay plugged in with other motivated entrepreneurs, designers and developers in your area. Here are a few ways to continue to cultivate these relationships:
- Attend local events, like Digital Fertilizer meetups or OpenCoffees.
- Post to the F6S event or OpenCoffee group to share progress updates and ask questions.
- Follow and tweet with the #swgreenbay hashtag on Twitter.
The organizing team has not figured out exactly when the next event will be, but chances are it will be happening around the same time next year. We'll make sure to send out an email as the details are finalized and we'll keep swgreenbay.com updated with the latest info.
Thanks again for helping make this possible. It was amazing to see everyone pull together and accomplish so much in just one weekend. We hope you had as much fun as we did and that we see you at the next event!
