Plug and Play Tech Center offers "Silicon Valley in a box." We bring together entrepreneurs, students, corporations, universities, governments, investors, and other key players in the Silicon Valley ecosystem.
Corporations have well established customer channels and a strong understanding of the markets in which they operate. For these reasons, corporate partnerships can be a key to a startup's success in getting to market--Plug and Play regularly works to match startups with corporations, either during "EXPO" pitch events or during private deal review sessions for select startups. Details on the application process for this program can be found here.
Plug and Play Tech Center has established relationships with the top national and international universities. To date, we have strong connections with universities such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Simon Fraser, Cambridge, and others. Our goal is to educate students on entrepreneurship, to motivate and inspire them to start their own ventures; once these ventures are created our extensive network will increase their chances of success by 2-3 times. We look forward to including many more universities into this prestigious network.
Plug and Play Tech Center has established partnerships with top-tier venture capital companies such as Norwest Venture Partners, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Sequoia Capital, Menlo Ventures, Battery V Foundation Capital and Accel Partners.
These relationships offer a win-win relationship for both the startup and the VC community.
Plug and Play International establishes lasting partnerships with government agencies, private corporations, technology incubators and universities from around the world to source, identify and accelerate promising high-tech startups in Silicon Valley.
