Over the weekend of February 9, 10, 11, more than 40 people came out to Upward Hartford to participate in the big event. Eight teams formed to compete for the prize money. The winner was InsurGuru.
InsurGuru was four guys - Jacques Caspi, Rajasekar Narayanan, Corey Harris, Jr, and Craig Mitchell. Each took home their share of $5,000! As for the other teams? Well, they had a great time and learned a ton about innovation and turning startup ideas into businesses.
The other seven teams had some great ideas, too. RUOK was an app that used AI to look at pictures of your skin and see if you need stitches. Veterans Aasta Frascati and Catherine Leek were on the hunt for the prize but instead built a killer app!
My Forecast had a great idea to monetize the future value of your health costs based on your current health, history, and current lifestyle. If you knew your lifestyle was going to cost between $700,000 or more before you pass away, but lifestyle changes can save you $500,000, would you change your lifestyle to be healthier? My Forecast believes so.
The event had great sponsors! Cigna, InsureTech Connect, Arc Software Studios, Davis Companies, Amazon Web Services, and Priya Indian Cuisine all contributed immensely to the event. Thanks to all of our sponsors!
