USA officially welcomes Plug and Play Sportstech accelerator program

Plug and Play has officially established a presence in Frisco. Plug and Play had a launch event on Tuesday afternoon, March 26, at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Frisco. They invited the community to celebrate their office expansion in Frisco. They are bringing startup business accelerator programs to the city’s innovation ecosystem.

The Plug and Play expansion initiative is a joint effort with the Frisco Economic Development Corporation (EDC). In October, the Frisco EDC Board of Directors approved a performance-based incentive deal with Plug and Play. At first, Plug and Play Frisco will lead a Sportstech accelerator program focused on improving human capability and enhancing performance. In the future, Plug and Play Frisco plans to include more groups that reflect the types of innovation happening in North Texas. They will specifically focus on areas like health, fintech, cybersecurity, and smart city technologies.

On Tuesday, the Plug and Play vision became a reality in “Sports City, USA.” This happened at the National Soccer Hall of Fame, which is located at Toyota Stadium. Toyota Stadium is the home of FC Dallas, one of the original franchises of Major League Soccer.

“We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all the partners in the room,” said David Steele, who is the director of Frisco’s Plug and Play, during his remarks on Tuesday. “First, I want to express my gratitude to Frisco EDC for the partnership.” We are excited to work on innovative projects with you. Also, our advisory committee relies on your involvement in our ecosystem, support for our startups, and dedication to our partners. Without these contributions, we would not be able to accomplish anything. We owe our presence here to the vision and leadership of our founder and CEO, Saeed Amidi. Thank you for bringing new ideas and advancements, specifically in Frisco.
