Plug and Play’s promising start in Warsaw

Warsaw’s global recognition as the epicenter of the orthopedic sector makes it the perfect location for this venture.

Saeed Amidi, founder of Plug and Play, is excited about the new opportunity. He has successfully fostered 34 ‘unicorns’, including DropBox and PayPal. Amidi envisions Plug and Play as a launchpad for major corporations, with the ambition of hosting the world’s leading med-tech company among its start-ups.

Governor Holcomb commends Plug and Play’s aptitude for identifying potential in startups and assisting their growth. He is eager about the chances this partnership brings, anticipating Indiana to become an active hub for technology, ultimately advancing the local thriving tech ecosystem. This partnership is believed to not only boost the state’s economy but also provide a global platform for ambitious start-ups.

Plug and Play, headquartered in Silicon Valley, has a staggering 50 offices across five continents. The Warsaw office is their first venture in Indiana.

Ivan Tornos, Zimmer Biomet’s CDO, is optimistic about the potential of the new venture to transform northeast Indiana into a Silicon Valley-like hub for med-tech.
