“When he looks out from his small office in the Mayo Clinic Business Accelerator, veteran Rochester entrepreneur Al Berning says he sees something special going on in his city’s business start-up scene.
CEO of one-year-old Ambient Clinical Analytics, Berning certainly knows his way around a Rochester start-up. After 15 years at IBM, he founded electronics manufacturer PEMSTAR in 1994, leading it through a $115 million initial public offering six years later. From 2007 to 2012, he ran Hardcore Computer/Liquid Cool Solutions, developers of a new type of liquid-cooled computing technology, which by 2013 had raised $18.5 million in venture funding.”
