High Tech Rochester Inc. has selected 13 teams from a pool of 33 applicants for the second season of the Lean LaunchPad program, funded by the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation.

The program is a free 12-week program aimed at helping startups get off the ground.
The HTR LaunchPad offers startups one year of mentoring services and access to HTR’s facilities. The program is for Rochester-area software and Web-based teams developing applications such as portable Web-based devices, cloud computing and mobile apps.

The 13 teams are:
