Chris Meyer was working on building the new home for Sector67, a maker space he founded in Madison, when a propane tank started to leak.

The propane ignited. Meyer was burned on a third of his body in the Sept. 20 accident.

While Meyer received treatment for the burns to his head, neck and arms, his friends in the startup community went to work. They knew Meyer wouldn’t want the project to come to a halt.

On Sunday, his college roommate, Justin Beck, who founded mobile games studio PerBlue, started a GoFundMe page to raise money to finish the project. The original goal: raise $50,000 to help finish renovations at Sector67’s new site at 56 Corry St. in Madison.

That goal was met within 48 hours. Read the full story here.
