Friday, April 29, 2011

Forty-five students on 22 teams from more than 20 departments across the UW-Madison campus competed on Friday, April 29, in the largest G. Steven Burrill Business Plan competition ever at the Wisconsin School of Business. Participants vied for a shot at $23,250 in prize money. New this year, top-placing teams also won incorporation assistance from BizFilings, memberships at Sector67 - a local collaborative space - and free office space at University Research Park's newest incubator, the Metro Innovation Center, valued at $15,000.

Alex Wyler, Eric Martell, and Matt Howard won the competition for their BadgerBites concept, a plan for an online food software order system.
