Joe Babiec, Vice President, Strategic Initiatives During Selection Day

VIA is pleased to share that we have been selected for the Spring 2019 cohort of Plug and Play’s Energy and Sustainability accelerator program. Plug and Play is one of Silicon Valley’s most prominent startup accelerators and venture investors. They connect competitively selected startups with their ecosystem of 280 major corporate partners and more than 200 VCs. Among the most notable program alumni are Paypal and Dropbox.

VIA is one of 15 companies chosen from more than 200 candidates to participate in Plug and Play’s intensive 10-week Energy and Sustainability program. During the final stage of the selection process in February, VIA’s own Joe Babiec pitched to a group of international utility companies and energy-focused venture capital firms.

Plug and Play’s Founder and CEO, Saeed Amidi, touches on the potential of the startups accepted into the program:

“It is fantastic to see such a talented group of entrepreneurs accepted into our programs. We aim to give our startups the best chance for success and these next three months will give them the tools and connections they need to thrive,” said Saeed Amidi, Founder and CEO of Plug and Play. “I am excited to see what they can accomplish when integrated into our ecosystem.”
