"I am incredibly excited to welcome the new batch of startups to our Plug and Play ecosystem," says Saeed Amidi, CEO of Plug and Play. "The connections made throughout our programmes will give startups the tools to transform these industries. I look forward to seeing how they will help increase efficiency and advance the markets forward."
