Plug and Play launches an accelerator to develop technologies addressing plastic waste – TechCrunch
The Plug and Play network of accelerator programs is partnering with the nonprofit organization Alliance to End Plastic Waste to create an accelerator focused on developing technologies to reduce, remove or replace plastics in the industrial ecosystem.
Like Techstars, Plug and Play operates a number of industry-focused accelerator programs around the world, and for this program, targeting solutions that will lower the impact of plastic waste on the environment, the accelerator will operate two programs annually in three different regions — Silicon Valley, Paris and Singapore.
For its part, the Alliance to End Plastic Waste will work with the companies that support the organization, which include some of the largest chemical companies and manufacturers of plastic waste, to select focus areas and source specific startups working on solutions.
In true accelerator fashion there will be a demo day where AEPW and Plug and Play would have the opportunity to invest in participating companies.
“By devoting resources and attention to this global issue of plastic waste, we can make a difference in the environment.
