Plug and Play announces another elite batch of Brand & Retail startups to join them on their path to retail disruption. These twenty startups will be a part of a 3-month accelerator program designed for emerging retail technologies.
The Plug and Play model allows startups to engage with the entire retail industry at once – from retailers, brands, CPGs, mall operators and solution providers – to scale their technology across the entire industry. Partners of the program play an active role in forming the program’s focus, as well as working to identify ways to integrate the relevant batch participants into their core technology. Notable partners include: Panasonic, Colgate-Palmolive, Simon Venture Group, Henkel, Clorox, and over 30 other industry leaders.
“Being selected by Plug and Play is an exciting opportunity for SwiftIQ to further partner with some of the world’s top brand and retail thought leaders to solve complex data analytics issues,” says Jason Lobel, CEO of SwiftIQ.
The Brand & Retail program runs two batches per year, each sourcing over 800 applications, with only a 3% acceptance rate.
