Hundreds of DCWEEK festival participants got down to business this weekend with a two-day hackathon, hoping to turn their idea into a product in 30 hours.
DCWEEK is a week-long event for entrepreneurs, designers and developers, and social innovators that kicked off on Friday in Washington. Hackathon participants worked out of the Microsoft offices in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and even got a visit from the local FOX News. Volunteers from CrisisCampDC also attended to work on problems caused by Hurricane Sandy.
On Sunday night, 21 teams presented two-minutes pitches to the judges and a packed crowd. The prizes awarded included thousands of dollars in cash and a trip to CES. Here are the winners:
