Boston area to get its own Rock Health startup accelerator

The Boston Globe is reporting today that the Rock Health, the San Francisco based health startup accelerator, will be opening up a Boston branch this Summer. The program is already accepting applications.

Reportedly several Boston based entrepreneurs are already signed up as mentors, including Jason Jacobs of RunKeeper, Ben Rubin of Zeo, Erika Pabo of Harvard Med School, Sonny Vu of Misfit Wearables, and Jacob Sattelmair of WellFrame.

Building new companies around health technology cannot successfully occur in a vaccum and locating within Harvard Medical School and in the near vicinity of MITs famed Media lab will no doubt help attract talented startups.

[update: the above mentioned mentors were incorrectly listed as investors]

    They’re signed up as mentors, not investors!
