HabitAware, which makes software and wearable technology that helps people with destructive, "body-focused" repetitive behaviors, won the first prize among nine finalists in the first "MEDA's $1 million Challenge" for minority entrepreneurs.

HabitAware, based in St. Louis Park, was awarded $400,000 in a competition that has bloomed to $1.475 million, thanks to additional sponsorship. Last fall, the company won the $50,000 grand prize in the annual Minnesota Cup business competition.
