Lightphile won the 2015 InnoTech Beta Summit Thursday morning at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
David Barrick, CEO and Co-founder presented the company, which makes an app and hardware box to control stage lighting systems.
Lightphile, based at Geekdom, is currently in private beta but has a handful of paying customers including the Geekdom Events Center, the Woodlands First Community Baptist Church and Waco Hall.
Lightphile has raised some capital from angel investors and the Geekdom Fund.
The audience attending the beta summit chose Lightphile as the winner using the VoxVote.com mobile app. Lightphile captured 62 percent of the vote, followed by InfoCyte, a cybersecurity startup and Leto Solutions, a startup that makes a cooling device for people with prosthetic legs.
The other presenters included PhishBarrel, an email spam blocker and phishing scam detection and prevention software and SecPod, a cybersecurtiy software company. Silicon Hills News helped to organize the event and served as moderator.
