As a result of the partnership with Maersk and Ericsson, Plug and Play will launch its 11th industry vertical, this one focusing on Transport & Logistics, for existing start-ups with innovative ideas in this space.
“It is with great excitement we announce the launch of our Supply Chain & Logistics Innovation Platform with Maersk and Ericsson. In this globally connected world, commerce and trade makes our world a better place; and without efficient shipping and logistics, this would not be possible,” says Saeed Amidi, Founder and CEO of Plug and Play.
“We look forward to working with Global 100 companies that ship their products and goods worldwide to do this more efficiently, more cost effectively, and more sustainably for years to come.”
How it works
Startups considered for the Transport & Logistics vertical will be innovating in areas such as disruptive business models, improved customer experience, application of IoT devices, advanced analytics, and future technologies connecting multiple parties, such as blockchain.
The companies accepted into the program have the opportunity to receive funding from Plug and Play Ventures, weekly mentor sessions with industry thought leaders, entry to 22 international locations, opportunities for potential pilot projects, and access to the founding Anchor Partners, Maersk and Ericsson.
Applications for the program are now open.
