New Britain hand- and power-tool maker Stanley Black & Decker Inc. and a Colorado venture capital firm on Tuesday launched year two of an advanced manufacturing accelerator program in downtown Hartford.

The Stanley Technology Center in One Constitution Plaza recently completed its inaugural year, which included 10 startups from U.S., Canada, Israel and Ireland focused on technologies that build 3D objects with materials layering such as plastics, metals and concrete

In 2019, the Stanley+Techstars Accelerator said it will consider startups focused on additive manufacturing or environmentally friendly sustainable packaging.

Marty Guay, Stanley's vice president of business development, said the accelerator program, housed in a 23,000-square-foot space, is confident it can attract a "robust entrepreneurial community" to Hartford.

"Additive manufacturing is one of the most important areas of technological transformation today and has the potential to influence the future direction of the industries in which our businesses operate," Guay said.
