Startup Weekend Winners
WRITTEN BY Alysha Stoffel
Two UW-Eau Claire students, Brandon Cedarblade and Nick Scherrer, along with their partners Eric Charles, John Kane, and Nick Marzofka, were named winners of Eau Claire's first Startup Weekend on Sunday. The team's idea was to create an interactive visual marketing tool for jewelers. Over the course of Startup Weekend, they created a prototype and demonstrated the technology. Along with the winning title, their prize package includes $17,000 in start-up resources donated by businesses throughout the city of Eau Claire.
