Togg is expanding its Plug and Play collaboration in different fields, which it announced at the STARTUP AUTOBAHN Expo 2022 event held in Stuttgart, Germany in July. Launching the international Mobility Acceleration Program with Plug and Play and becoming a member of STARTUP AUTOBAHN, an open innovation platform also supported by Plug and Play, Togg has now become a founding member of the Plug and Play Turkey ecosystem for the 'Smart Cities' program in Turkey. . With the signing ceremony held in Informatics Valley, Togg will support start-ups that will develop smart life solutions in our country. Within the scope of the 'Smart Cities' program, Togg will support dozens of start-ups in the Plug and Play ecosystem, mainly working on smart energy solutions, smart living solutions in smart cities, and new mobility services, from workshops to mentoring. Some start-ups to be selected within the scope of the program will be included in the international scale-up program.
In addition, applications were opened for the Mobility Acceleration Program, which Togg brought to the international arena in cooperation with Plug and Play. With reference to the redefinition of mobility, Togg and Plug and Play will provide support to global entrepreneurs in every aspect they need such as mentoring, financial consultancy and projects, with a special focus on blockchain, fintech and insurtech fields, within the scope of the 3-month project they have realized under the name of “ReDeFine”. Project applications will be received until January 2nd.
Togg CEO M. Gürcan Karakaş stated that they are happy to cooperate with Plug and Play and said:
“Start-ups play a critical role in shaping the mobility ecosystem because today, innovative technologies are neither found in the automotive industry nor in large corporate companies. These innovations are mostly developed by small, agile, creative entrepreneurs, namely start-ups. In the field of technology, cars are becoming smart living spaces. We aim to offer much more than just a connected car with services we call 'Togg Smart Life'. We develop smart energy solutions, smart living solutions in smart cities, and new mobility services, especially with a focus on 'Smart Cities'. We create sustainable value through our collaborations with start-ups in all these areas. We believe that we will make a strong contribution to the ecosystem of 'Smart Cities' in our country with the Plug and Play cooperation.”
Plug and Play CEO and Founder Saeed Amidi underlined that they are very happy and proud of the collaboration, saying, “Togg has an exciting vision of being much more than a smart device by creating a mobility ecosystem. As Plug and Play, we believe that this collaboration we started with Togg will create many success stories on the way to this vision.” Saeed also stated that Togg Technology Campus is one of the best campuses he has ever seen and said, “I congratulate Togg and Turkey for this.”
