Plug and Play taps first Cleveland cohort

Story excerpt provided by Crain’s Cleveland Business.

Plug and Play Cleveland has selected 12 health tech startups from around the globe that will set up shop at the Global Center for Health Innovation.

The dozen companies were selected from a group of more than 480 applicants. Over the next three months, the selected startups will work with Plug and Play’s corporate partners — namely JumpStart Inc. and the Cleveland Clinic — and have the opportunity to land pilots, develop proof of concepts and explore investment opportunities, according to a news release. There is no cost for the startups to participate in the program. They will graduate from the program June 28.

“It is an honor to open our Cleveland office in partnership with Cleveland Clinic and JumpStart, launching a program with the world’s most promising startups in the HealthTech sector,” said Saeed Amidi, founder and CEO of the Silicon Valley-based Plug and Play accelerator, in a news release. “Plug and Play intends to replicate the success we’ve had in Paris with BNP Paribas and in Stuttgart with Mercedes by working in partnership with a broad range of Cleveland Clinic specialists, including cardiologists, orthopedists, neurologists, endocrinologists, urologists, and many others.”
