The Silicon Valley
Program

The Silicon Valley
Program

Plug and Play Health connects the best startups in the world to healthcare corporations who want to disrupt the industry. Since its inaugural batch in 2015, the Silicon Valley program has accelerated 300+ startups in partnership with more than 30 corporations, and have made 80+ investments – with the ultimate goal to make a lasting impact on healthcare.

Joining Plug and Play Health allows us to expand the global footprint of our program, tap into the ecosystem in the valley, and leverage the existing infrastructure for networking and scouting activities. 

We are currently in the build-up phase for our Silicon Valley program with the aim to establish a full program based on the proven Munich concept.
