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:

  • Providentia Healthcare Analytics (Karan Mehrotra)

“Each team has great potential yet all could likely benefit from experienced advisers and additional resources for bringing their concepts to the marketplace,” said Michael Riedlinger, LaunchPad program director, in a statement.  “By using the HTR LaunchPad approach, a startup team learns what needs to be done to address specific customer needs, rapidly adapt to market requirements and build viable business models to make money from their venture.”
