We’re delighted to announce the participation of Von Bismark in Plug and Play Ventures Retail accelerator in Silicon Valley this Autumn. As one of 20 start ups selected from over 800 applications it’s an incredible opportunity for Von Bismark to increase its footprint in the US and add to the over 200 US based retailers already signed up to sell on The Mall on Xbox One in the US market.

From Plug & Play’s recent press release

“The Plug and Play model allows startups to engage with the entire retail industry at once – from retailers, brands, CPGs, mall operators and solution providers – to scale their technology across the entire industry. Partners of the program play an active role in forming the program’s focus, as well as working to identify ways to integrate the relevant batch participants into their core technology. Notable partners include: Panasonic, Colgate-Palmolive, Simon Venture Group, Henkel, Clorox, and over 30 other industry leaders.”

“We truly believe that the next breakthrough in retail is happening right here under our roof. It’s the type of environment that allows innovative entrepreneurs to actually collaborate with industry leaders,” says Pouya Tehranian, Director of Brand & Retail.
