HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- One team walked away with a win and continued business support after Startup Weekend.
Frank Tamberrino, the president of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce and one of the organizers of Startup Weekend, said the winner, Task Rascals, wants to create an application for families.
Its proposal is for a web-based application where parents and kids can plan and negotiate chores.
The plan even includes having an account where parents can directly deposit money.
Tamberrino said it's a great way to bring new businesses to the area.
"We're helping people out, we're helping potential entrepreneurs we're helping people again, gain a little bit of experience in terms of putting business plans together, having professional coaches, professional critics, you know look at those plans. So indeed there may be a business or two or three that start up," said Tamberrino.
The winner needs about $150,000 to start up and the chamber of commerce will help market and support the business.
