13 New Companies Launch as Fall Session Wraps

13 companies will present to a sold out audience in New England today as the Rhode Island / Boston community celebrates the wrap of Betaspring's 5th accelerator session.  Completion of the Fall session brings Betaspring's tally to 57 technology-driven startups, a cohort that has raised $20M in follow-on funding.  

Earlier this week, the companies took our investor 'sneak peek day' by storm, with several of the teams locking into promising relationships with angel investors and VCs from across the region.
