FARGO — Officials from Plug and Play joined Gov. Doug Burgum Wednesday, March 4, to announce their intent to open an office in Fargo with a focus on agriculture technology.
Plug and Play is a global innovation platform with over 25 locations giving startups the necessary resources to succeed in Silicon Valley and beyond.
The Fargo location is being launched with founding partners: Bremer Bank, CHS, Microsoft and The OCP Group.
“We’re grateful to Plug and Play and its corporate partners for their investment in North Dakota’s entrepreneurial ecosystem,” Burgum said. “As a national leader in agriculture and farm technology, North Dakota is an ideal place for startups from around the globe to test their technology, grow their companies and advance agriculture for our nation and world.”
Plug and Play expects to begin full operations in Fargo in late May. Startups accepted into the programs will get to work with the corporate partners and test their technology at the Grand Farm test site.
