Future Commerce Fund

The Future Commerce Fund is Plug and Play’s first industry-specific fund, built on Plug and Play’s first vertical--Brand & Retail. Through the Future Commerce Fund, Plug and Play will further support the growth of their early-stage portfolio companies and invest in Series A to Series C startups that are achieving great commercial traction through their accelerator programs and 500+ corporate partner network.

Some of the most forward-thinking brands and retailers are proud investors in this fund. Investment focus areas will closely follow those of the Brand & Retail program. The current themes are digital, e-commerce, and the consumer’s path to purchase.

How We Invest

Plug and Play typically invests $50K-250K in Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A startups. Now, with the launch of the Future Commerce Fund, Plug and Play and our limited partners will be able to continue to support Plug and Play’s portfolio companies and program startups who are raising Series A-Series C financing. Over the next three years, Plug and Play plans to make roughly 20 investments through the Future Commerce Fund.

Many of the fund’s investors (known as limited partners) are Plug and Play’s corporate members that are deepening their relationships with some of the best startups transforming commerce. The founders of some of Plug and Play’s most successful portfolio companies are also limited partners in the fund. Plug and Play is contributing 10% of the fund’s capital.
