SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Apr. 27, 2022 - Plug and Play Tech Center announced the selection of 20 startups chosen for its batch in Brazil. These startups were selected for the Fintech, Food & Beverage, and Agtech verticals.
Partnering with these startups will be Claro, Ihara, and Klabin for Food & Beverage and Agtech. BRB, Tokio Marine, and BNP Paribas have partnered with startups in Fintech.
The startups can now engage with Plug and Play's network of corporate partners, venture capitalists, alumni, and industry leaders. Due to current challenges surrounding COVID-19, companies will be connected virtually to partners in private deal flow sessions to accelerate the POC process and work on a joint project to find the best solutions to the challenges our corporate partners addressed.
The LATAM ecosystem formed by our startups and corporate partners has shown its potential and its ability to develop an environment of co-creation and interaction. We look forward to identifying, together with our partners, new success stories that can generate an impact in the Brazilian ecosystem.
Plug and Play doesn’t take equity as a prerequisite for joining the program and there is no cost for the startups to participate. Plug and Play invests separately from the activities of the program and is ranked as one of Silicon Valley's most active early-stage investors.
The startups will remain part of the ecosystem even after the program's EXPO Day on June 30, 2022.
