Plug & Play Retail Pitch
Last week, we headed back over to the States, as we were fortunate enough to have been invited to take part in the Plug & Play Retail Pitch Day. To give a little bit of context, the Plug & Play Tech Center is “a global innovation platform for startups, corporations and investors.”
Annually, they review 4,000 startups and then select a few to take part in the industry specific accelerator programmes that they organise. Along with these programmes, they also make introductions to the right people and can provide investment for some. Essentially, they aim to build an ecosystem in which startups actually have a chance of succeeding and getting their business ideas off of the ground.
Although it was only one day, it was a short but sweet trip. The pitch went well and we had time afterwards to network and meet some really interesting people. We are really pleased to have been chosen as a part of the programme, commencing next week, so keep an eye on our blog and Twitter to hear any updates.
