Clifton-based TechLaunch — the N.J. tech accelerator — announced that six members of its Spring 2014 cohort have started the LaunchPad3 program at the accelerator.
At Startup Weekend New Jersey which ended March 30, 2014, two more companies, Waddle and Shop Smart, became eligible for consideration to go into the program.
In a release, TechLaunch said,”all the new companies happen to hail from the Garden State, although that was not a pre-requisite for applying to TechLaunch. It’s simply an indicator of the high caliber of innovation and entrepreneurship alive and well in New Jersey.”
