Nine startups, including five from Baltimore city, in the inaugural class of the DreamIt Health Baltimore accelerator for health IT startups were introduced during a kickoff event Friday.

Find the list of the startups below.

DreamIt Health will shepherd early-stage healthcare startups through a four-month program, providing them with stipends of up to $50,000 in addition to professional services, mentoring and programming. In exchange, DreamIt Health takes 8 percent in common stock of each startup that completes its program. Startups will be working from Bond Street Wharf in Fells Point, a Johns Hopkins University property that DreamIt is leasing from the university.

DreamIt is an accelerator program founded in Philadelphia with programs also in NYC, Austin and Israel. In addition to the healthcare vertical, the program has a more general program in those other markets.

Overseeing DreamIt Health Baltimore as managing director is Jason Hardebeck, the executive director of gb.tc. As Technical.ly Baltimore reported, Hardebeck will retain his directorship of gb.tc while serving as DreamIt Health’s managing director.

During the kickoff party Friday, held at the Morgan Stanley office in Fells Point, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she hoped the startups going through DreamIt’s program will choose to remain in Baltimore.

“This is the type of vitality around the health sector that I knew was possible in Baltimore,” she said. “Hopefully … you’ll stay in Baltimore.”

It was also announced that healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente has signed on as another partner in the DreamIt Health Baltimore program, along with the Johns Hopkins University, BioHealth Innovation, and several others.
