Blueprint Health, a TechStars Incubator, Opens First Sesh

Blueprint Health, an incubator for health-related startups that closed its funding and opened for applications in the fall, started today with nine companies, just one from New York (Patient Communicator), one from China (iCouch), one from Dubai and the rest from the U.S. The program is three months long and very similar to TechStars, which open sourced its model so that other incubators could be part of the TechStars Network. The incubator also added ten new mentors, reports TechCrunch, including Andy Weissman of Union Square Ventures.
