In partnership with FCA and Michigan Minorities Supplier Development Council (MMSDC), Plug and Play Detroit will aim to promote diversity by supporting startup technologies founded and led by women and minority entrepreneurs. Each cohort participating in our accelerator batch will have a minimum of 40% female or minority led startups.
By launching a location closer to the OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, we aim to involve the business units directly with the startup technologies, ultimately achieving more pilot projects, proof of concepts, strategic partnerships.
Our focus areas include:
- Autonomous Transport
- Shared Economy
- Industry 4.0
- Smart City and Infrastructure
- Hardware & Sensors
- Last Mile Logistics
- VR & AR
- Edge Computing & Data Analytics
