PASCO, WA- The Tri-Cities Startup Weekend continued Sunday in Pasco.

Tri-Cities Startup Weekend brought people with ideas to form teams and work together for 56 hours on a project

This year seven teams competed and worked to get the judges' attention.  They looked for help developing their business ideas.

“A large group of us are very dedicated to this being successful in the Tri-Cities.  We're all volunteers in this and we just do this because we're passionate about entrepreneurship,” said Kris Lapp, event organizer.

A lot of the ideas dealt with technology.  There were ideas about automated beer brewing systems, various phone apps, and even technology for sporting equipment.
