“When I moved to Silicon Valley from Europe, I decided to set up shop at Plug and Play for Zong. I didn’t know anyone here, and the community helped accelerate our development and recruiting, gave us exposure through homegrown events, and enabled us to network efficiently with other startups. I highly recommend it to early stage startups!”
