1World Online has been recently selected through a rigorous process to take part in Plug-n-Play’s Silicon Valley Program! From over 1,000 startups, 100 were shortlisted. From there the list was narrowed down to 30 via receiving feedback from PnP Corporate Partners, and then again to 15, who were selected during the Final Pitch to participate in the program.
Congratulations to all of the 1World team for making this possible! We received high ratings from our partners which secured our position among the final applicants.
Plug And Play is an early to mid stage investor and corporate innovation platform with over 20 locations worldwide. Their headquarters are located in Sunnyvale, California. Each location runs two accelerator programs in each industry, totaling 50 programs per year. Across all locations, they run more than 1,000 startup acceleration programs per year. Plug And Play connects with corporations and introduces them to startup culture and the startups themselves, joining the two for possible partnerships.
The primary vertical that we will begin our participation in Plug And Play’s program with is Food and Beverages. We have plans, however, to expand into Retail and Media verticals in the very near future. Advertising that is hyper-personalized, immersive, and experimental is directly up our alley. We can produce real value when it comes to forward-thinking brands and retailers, and 1World Trivia Unit, among other formats, is the perfect means of website gamification and high conversion rates.
Plug And Play has twenty-two locations worldwide, including offices in Germany, Spain, France, China, and many other countries. Their global headquarters are located in Sunnyvale, California, the heart of the Silicon Valley. Plug And Play accelerated 1,107 startups in 2018, 562 of which were in the U.S., and 545 of which were international.
