Summer 2014 EXPO

Join 400 entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate partners as 30+ companies pitch on stage and demo their products. 

The Startups

We looked far and wide to uncover the best. We poked our heads into university dorm rooms and lecture halls, brought pizza for entrepreneurial clubs, sat in the front rows of business plan competitions and cheered the loudest at local pitch events. The result, after talking with hundreds of high quality startups, is a pool of 30+ amazing teams building products that will change the world. Come watch as they introduce themselves. 

The Venue

EXPO takes place in the 6,000 square foot Event Center at the Plug and Play HQ in sIlicon Valley. Watch the startups pitch, then meet them in the demo pit. Winners will be announced at the official after-party - a fully catered celebration on the beautiful 3,000 square foot outdoor patio. Escape the overcast San Francisco weather and spend the day in sunny Sunnyvale. 

The Pitches

For three months they have worked to refine their prototypes, pitch decks, and delivery, but three-minute rapid fire pitches in front of 500 investors is no joke. Be there when it all goes down. 

The Value

Plug and Play has been investing in and accelerating companies for 7 years. EXPO is our public invitation to Silicon Valley to come meet us. There is no better place to see the latest startup trends, meet investors and startups, and #plugin to our powerful corporate network. Plug and Play team members will be everywhere, ready to answer your questions and help you get introductions. Life is too short to ignore your dreams. We share a common passion with our community to change the status quo, to build new things, and to reshape our world through creative problem solving and dogged determination. Join us.
