INX International partners with Plug and Play
INX International Ink Co has partnered with Silicon Valley-based Plug and Play, the world’s largest startup accelerator and innovation centre, to collaborate and explore new opportunities. The decision to become a participating company in the New Materials and Packaging platform is the latest development of INX’s commitment to and support of sustainable practices by fostering and promoting an entrepreneurial mindset.
“This decision to join with Plug and Play is reflective of our desire to seek new solutions to keep us at the forefront of understanding market trends,” stated Shane Bertsch, vice president of Strategic Planning and Innovation for INX International Ink Co. “Sustainability and a circular economy are definitely relevant to our growth platforms, which is the real focus of our work with Plug and Play. We are working to connect with entrepreneurs to mutually benefit them, us and our customers.”
“We are excited to welcome INX as one of our newest partners to our New Materials & Packaging vertical,” said Michael Olmstead, chief revenue officer at Plug and Play. “They bring a unique perspective to this programme, and their dedication to sustainability and corporate social responsibility strongly aligns with Plug and Play’s commitment to help corporations digitally transform within their industry so they can make positive change and stay ahead of the curve. We look forward to connecting them with the best and brightest startups in the industry so they can continue to make a difference for their customers, consumers and community.”
As Fortune 500 companies strive to cultivate and achieve five and ten year goals in the next decade, INX has raised its sustainability profile in recent months. In August, INX Europe announced its decision to join CEFLEX, the European-based flexible packaging consortium.
