Would $1,000,000 from Luminate help your startup? Apply now
If you are in an optics, photonics, or imaging startup, there is at least $100,000 if you are selected.
As Laser Focus World chief editor Conard Holton explains in an upcoming business forum in the magazine, Luminate (http://luminate.org) is a "business accelerator based in Rochester, NY, and focused on helping startups move beyond the struggling, prototype stage to emerge in the broader 'optics-enabled' marketplace." So if you are a startup with at least two full-time employees and preferably with a prototype trying to bring your optics, photonics, and imaging (OPI) product to market, there may be up to one million dollars if you qualify.

By mid September, Luminate is hoping that around 150 companies will have applied for an investment of at least $100,000 and up to $1,000,000 as part of its $5M per year accelerator for OPI startups.
The selected startup companies will live and work in Rochester, NY with all the photonics infrastructure afforded by the High Tech Rochester (HTR) program.
