Our company was honored to be selected earlier this year for the Fintech program at Plug & Play, a Silicon Valley-based organization that connects some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies with the most promising technology firms in their industries.
For verticals including Fintech, Insurtech, Brand & Retail, and others, Plug & Play partners with leading corporations to source game-changing technology partners, typically screening 1,000 tech firms for each vertical, interviewing 100, inviting 40 to pitch at the program’s Selection Day, then selecting 20.
During the 3 month program, tech firms are connected with Plug & Play Corporate partners which count more than 40 in the Fintech vertical and include companies like Ally, Deloitte, Intuit, RSM, US Bank, USAA, and others.
In the final “Summit” event, held on Thursday, October 25th at the Santa Clara Convention Center, about 400 people gathered to hear from the tech firms that included Arpuve, Grove, Ople, Peanut Butter, and 16 others. Our CEO, David Aronson, spoke about the war for talent in Financial Services and how Peanut Butter is helping organizations like Kinecta Federal Credit Union attract and engage college-educated employees.
At the end of the event, Peanut Butter was recognized on-stage as the Startup Winner for the Fintech Program.
In early December, our CEO will be back in Silicon Valley, presenting at Plug & Play’s Winter Summit as part of the organization’s Insurtech program. Shortly after being selected for the Fintech program in August, we were honored to be selected for the Insurtech program which includes over 60 innovative corporations such as Aflac, Aon, State Farm, Progressive, Willis Towers Watson, and others.
