Plug and Play Accepts 21 Startups for its first Batch in Brazil

    SÃO PAULO, Brazil., April 22, 2020 -- Plug and Play announced today the 21 startups chosen for its first Batch in Brazil. These startups were selected by Plug and Play's corporate partner network and will enter one of the following programs for the next three months: Food & Agtech and Financial Services. 

    The selected startups will now have the opportunity to 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 joint projects to find the best solutions to the challenges our corporate partners addressed.

    "I am proud to welcome the first batch of startups to our Brazil program," said Saeed Amidi, Founder and CEO of Plug and Play. "We are here to connect them with new opportunities and I look forward to have successful cases in the Latam ecosystem."

    Plug and Play does not take equity as a prerequisite to joining the program and there is no cost for the selected 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 4th.
