Updated 5/10/13 11:19 a.m. to add more details about Charlie Giammattei and his winning project.

The Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) announced the winners of its first month-long Enterprise Hackathon, which we introduced here, earlier this week. The winners were:

  • Life Sciences Track: John Quillen, who is developing an app to support global product launches. Quillen, 50, is the founder of Malvern, Pa.-based life sciences IT consultancy Euclidean Group. This was his first hackathon. He won $50,000 and $1,000 in Amazon Web Services credits. Quillen, who’s worked in life sciences for nearly two decades, said he’ll continue to work on his hackathon project.
  • Infrastructure Track: Charlie Giammattei, who led a team that built an app for reporting water quality problems. Giammattei, 30, was also on the grand prize-winning team of the recent Philly Health Codefest, which was his first hackathon.  He’s the cofounder and CEO of Conshohocken-based MedTrak, which offers a healthcare data collection product called CareSense. Giammattei said the infrastructure track challenge — to build a handheld data collection system — was similar to what he had already built with CareSense. His team won $25,000 and $1,000 in Amazon Web Services credits.

The other infrastructure track, which asked hackers to develop a mobile app for performing infrastructure inspections, did not get enough strong entries to merit an award, said Satwik Seshasai, co-organizer of the hackathon and CTO of NextDocs.

The hackathon, which challenged teams to develop apps for enterprise companies, had 33 registered teams, 13 of which made it to the final submissions.

The Philadelphia Business Journal also reported on this here.
