Alliance to End Plastic Waste, Plug and Play Open Second Hub of Innovation Applications

07 01 2020

January 7, 2020 – The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) and Plug and Play are proud to open the application window for the European hub of the End Plastic Waste accelerator program, based in Paris.

The End Plastic Waste program is a 12-week, highly-structured curriculum that scouts and accelerates the highest-potential startups to tackle the global plastic waste challenge. For the Paris-based hub, 10 startups will be selected and announced in April, and each will then participate in a 90-day accelerator program that will run through July. Plug and Play will then host an expo, where all 10 startups will present their projects and initiatives to AEPW member companies for potential investment.

Startups can apply for the program’s European hub at this link. The deadline for applications is Monday, February 3, 2020.

Plug and Play—a global innovation platform that specializes in creating industry-specific accelerator programs—is partnering with AEPW to create this End Plastic Waste Innovation Platform, supporting programs in three hub locations: Silicon Valley, Paris and Singapore. The project underscores the Alliance’s commitment to innovation—one of our four core pillars—and addresses the challenge of ending plastic waste in a globally coordinated and transformative way.
