Clarisonic maker wins startup award

The Alliance of Angels, a local angel investment group, gave its “Startup of the Year” award today to Pacific Bioscience Laboratories. You’re probably more likely to know that company by its Clarisonic Skin Care Brush.

Finalists for the award included Escapia, which makes Web-based vacation rental software; OnRequest Images, an image company; Redfin, an online real estate broker; ScaleOut Software, which makes data storage software; and SNAPin, which makes mobile device software.

The alliance said that to become finalists companies have to receive angel or venture funding, make progress based on that funding and present its business plan to the alliance’s membership in the past three years.
