The Plug and Play (PnP) accelerator model is differentiated vs. traditional accelerators in many ways, especially by encouraging cross industry collaboration globally. PnP has developed a global network spanning the value chain from universities to startup companies, to financial partners, to global industry leaders in multiple industries, including life sciences, med tech and digital technologies. Networking  activities across the value chain and cross industry encourage associate thinking and collaboration and differentiates PnP vs. other accelerators.
