Greek DB wins Startup Weekend Evansville 3.0

Kettering University students Aaron Simmons and Ryan Allen of Flint, Michigan, along with University of Southern Indiana student Adam Simmons (Aaron’s brother), made up the Greek DB team winning the top prize at Startup Weekend Evansville 3.0. Greek DB pitched software designed to help manage fraternities, sororities and other Greek letter organizations, as well as other membership-based organizations.

Taking second place at Startup Weekend Evansville 3.0 was team Delicious Street made up of USI students Jason Litherland and Austin Craig, 2010 USI alumnus Kenny Lasley, and Alan Strahinic, an Indiana State University student. Their idea combined a food truck backed by a crowd-sourcing mobile app that allows users to request a food truck and the food truck driver to go where the most demand is.

The third place prize went to Med Secure headed up by USI management senior Adam Dennis, along with teammates and USI students Mark Lewellyn, Michelle Muse, Cole Schafer, and Joel Trewartha. Their idea revolved around a bio-locking (fingerprint) device that could be secured to drawers or medicine cabinets to protect dangerous prescription medication from being misused or abused by others.
