Congratulations to TechTown client Protean Payment on its $25,000 win at the 2012 Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition. The Ann Arbor-based startup snagged the product and service sector award for Echo, a reprogrammable card that can turn into any payment, loyalty or gift card of the user’s choosing with a touch of a button. Echo syncs wirelessly with Protean’s mobile wallet app, enabling users to securely and conveniently store and access an unlimited number of cards (say goodbye to your overstuffed wallet). TechTown snapped a pic of the dream team just one day before the big win.
