We also just started a corporate partner program with the Ergo insurance group. By having Ergo present at our office, we are able to offer each other quicker access to resources as well as providing much faster cooperation and progress by merging both Ergo’s and Axel Springer Plug and Play’s networks and resources. Through this partnership we hope to attract new start- ups, especially in the three areas of e-health, connected car, and shared economy, to apply for our accelerator program.
