May 01--Project Wedge of Olympia, a business startup that has developed hardware that turns your tablet computer or smart phone into a projector, won first place at Pacific Lutheran University's business plan competition.

As part of the grand prize, they also took home $7,500, according to a news release.

The co-founders, including Robb Anthony of The Evergreen State College, have experience competing in University of Washington business plan competitions, but had never advanced beyond the first round.

They were eligible to compete in the PLU business plan competition because another co-founder, Mark Rentfrow, earned his MBA degree there in 2010.

The competition was judged by a previously submitted business plan and a 10 minute presentation.
