You have the dedication, the eagerness and the experience to make a difference. We are here to help you go that extra mile. Successfully driving a startup requires more than just a good idea and cool technology.
We believe that what differentiates the best from the rest is a passionate, well-rounded team, a super disruptive technology and an innovative idea created for a larger market. Other factors that play into creating a successful venture are access to outside resources such as mentorship and raising funds. The Accelerator Program can help take your business to the next level through our weekly active coaching sessions and through access to our established network of VC’s, Investors, Corporations and other players in Silicon Valley and Spain.
The Plug and Play Accelerator Program is a 3-4 months program designed to immerse startups and entrepreneurs into a Silicon Valley inspired environment in Valencia. Through a combination of structured workshops, speaker series, mentorship sessions as well as active coaching, startup founders will crystallize their ideas and business plans, build out their startup’s business model and prototypes as well as present their refined pitches to the venture capital community.
Qualified Accelerator Program participants are eligible to receive an investment of up to €60,000 upon acceptance and they will be able to attend the program free of charge at our facilities (the program is valued at €15,000). In addition, all selected companies will receive more than $200.000 in services and products from our service providers (Softlayer, Rackspace, Zendesk, Paypal, Mailchimp, etc.).
The Accelerator program takes place at the Silicon Valley headquarters of Plug and Play Tech Center or in our newly opened headquarters in Valencia, Spain. Plug and Play Tech Center is a world renowned startup accelerator, located in Sunnyvale, CA. Plug and Play Tech Center is a thriving startup community with over 300 startups from all over the world.
Plug and Play Accelerator Program will conclude with the EXPO Day, a demo day that will connect the venture capital and angel investor community with Accelerator Program companies and provide additional exposure for them.
