Startup Weekend Delaware drew 55 members of the community’s best startup enthusiasts to tackle problems ranging from disaster relief to managing multiple syllabi.  We would like to extend a huge congratulations to the Delaware community on an outstanding event, and we can only hope you’ve all been properly bitten by the Startup Weekend bug…

A recap from lead organizer, Tom Nagle:

“Startup Weekend Delaware was a blast, from the kickoff to the awards reception on Sunday night. We had a great group who buckled down and made some really cool projects over three days. It was an exhausting, and exhilarating three days of action. We had people come from as far as Austin, Texas, and Greenville, South Carolina. Lerner Hall at the University of Delaware was a fantastic venue, and we were lucky to have great mentors and judges. All accomplished business people in their own right. We were really fortunate to have Nick and Adam from www.parkingpanda.com, the team that won Startup Weekend Baltimore back in April. They had just come out of a three-month accelerator and just launched their application – they also stuck around most of the weekend, answered questions, and mentored on Saturday.”
