Members of the OpenMoto team hear news of their Startup Weekend victory.

Dozens of de facto entrepreneurs worked through the weekend (Nov. 11-13) to develop business models as part of Peak Startup’s fourth annual Startup Weekend, which was hosted by Epicentral Coworking in downtown Colorado Springs.

After 54 hours spent working on various potentially-marketable concepts, six teams presented their business plans to a panel of judges and a crowd of interested locals Sunday night. For more information, read this week’s Colorado Springs Business Journal. Here were the competition’s gold, silver and bronze winners:

OpenMoto3
First Place Winner: OpenMoto, a team that developed a concept for a motorcycle co-working space with shared garages and a strong social element.
Cryptly
Second Place: Cryptly, a team that pitched a business plan that would serve to legitimize and secure the use of cryptocurrencies such as BitCoin.
FlyBacon
Third Place: FlyBacon, which envisioned a business that would provide the close-range delivery of food via drone at events such as concerts and sporting events.
