3RD PLACE: Congratulations to Grüple, who snagged the 3rd place prize at Startup Weekend Kansas City. Gruple.co creates a grüp, invites grüpies, notifies grüpies, and provides grüpies with a simple and quick way to reimburse others for tickets (through debit, credit and e-check).
2ND PLACE: Another congratulations goes out to Keyzio, winner of the 2nd place prize. Keyzio finds your location, allows you to verify your dream home address and then sends a postcard to inform the homeowner of your interest.
1ST PLACE: And finally, a BIG congratulations to TutHopper, winner of Kansas City Startup Weekend! TutHopper is a web-based company that teaches programming and system architecture through games.

Startup Weekend KC didn't announce the winners via press release or live blog post. Instead, the tech-savvy event blasted out the winners via Twitter the moment they were announced at the yesterday's live finale event.
Congratulations to all participants, organizers, volunteers and sponsors of Kansas City Startup Weekend. Another successful 54 hours are in the bag!
