YongoPal Wins UW Biz Competition

YongoPal, a Web startup that enables English conversations between people in Korea and the U.S., won the grand prize of $25,000 at tonight’s University of Washington Business Plan Competition. Empowering Engineering Technologies, a company that seeks to help disabled people to walk again, won the $10,000 second place award, while Emergent Detection and Febris each won $5,000 prizes. I wrote about the last two companies last month, during an earlier round of the competition, when I served as a judge.
