You've seen the physical changes to downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri to make it the new tech district, but now it's Heartland citizens who will help with the next step for the movement.

A Marble Hill, Mo. couple is one of two companies that will be relocating their business to Cape Girardeau as the winners of the 1st50K Grant.

Jason and Amanda Todt won with their idea of CosmeticTech. The company looks to bring cosmetic car repair from mobile technicians directly to you

The next step is developing a full product that is ready to use. The two are doing this to help save consumers of the application money.

"Right now we're working on a web based application," said Jason Todt. "But we hope to do a mobile where someone can take a picture of their repair and send it out to the repair technician and they'll get a quote and schedule the appointment."

The couple also has access to pro-bono services, like the space in Codefi, in addition to the $50,000. 

The goal of CosmeticTech is to have a functioning model by January 2017.
