The Business Page

Welcome to the business page, a blog where I'll take you behind the scenes of greater Rochester's fast-changing economy. My name is Ben Rand, and I intend to introduce you to some of the personalities, concepts and events that make news in business here. I've been a business reporter for eight years in Rochester and a journalist for 18, working in four states. I grew up in Pittsford, but moved away after college for about a decade. My wife and I live in Irondequoit with our two children.

New Companies

Next week brings another edition of Entrepreneurs and Angels, an event sponsored by Digital Rochester, a network of the region's tech-arazzi. Fledgling companies go to Entepreneurs and Angels to introduce themselves to potential investors in formal presentations.

There are four presenters on tap:

  • Campus Current: An online company launching later this year that promises to create communities on college campuses using web technology. The idea is to connect people with similar interests.
  • Lighthouse Biosciences: a UR-connected start-up that is working on cutting-edge technology for medical diagnostic instruments;
  • OptionC: A Web-based company that offers online learning and student management systems for Catholic schools in the United States;
  • Solar Sentry: Another of the many alternative-energy companies developing in our area. Solar Sentry has created a monitoring system for solar panels in large scale solar farms.

Presenters get 10 minutes each to talk about their companies, followed by networking. If you're interested in attending, go to
