ZEBOX, a global incubator and accelerator for supply chain, logistics, mobility and Industry 4.0 sectors, announced the opening of its North American headquarters. Located in Arlington, the new headquarters marks another milestone in the organization’s global expansion. The news also comes alongside the accelerator’s announcement of ZEBOX America’s first cohort of eight startups.
ZEBOX celebrated the ribbon cutting of its new headquarters and flagship innovation hub on Tuesday. The office is located a stone’s throw away from the site of Amazon’s upcoming HQ2 campus, as well as the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol. ZEBOX America expects its proximity to these organizations to give its cohort participants access to greater opportunities across private and public sectors.
“From our new headquarters, we’ll be working with inspirational founders and legendary industry leaders to chart a new course for the supply chain, logistics and Industry 4.0 sectors,” ZEBOX vice president Charley Dehoney said in a statement. “It’s a thrilling time to be launching our new HQ and I can’t wait to see what our startup family and our corporate partners achieve in the months and years to come.”
ZEBOX aims to connect early-stage startups with its expanding international network of supply chain, logistics, mobility and Industry 4.0 resources and experts. Portfolio companies of ZEBOX have access to a global pool of talent across departments as well as coveted funding opportunities from the accelerator’s circle of venture capitalists and angel investors. Some of ZEBOX most notable corporate partners include CMA CGM, BNSF Railway, Cargomatic, CEVA Logistics, EDRAY, Ingram Logistics, project44, the Port of Virginia, TRAC Intermodal and RoadOne.
“Joining ZEBOX brings powerful opportunities to accelerate growth,” OpenEnvo CEO Matthew Tillman said in a statement. “ZEBOX America’s ability to facilitate direct access to decision-makers at their corporate partners allows OpenEnvoy to structure proof of concepts that quickly demonstrate the value of our products. The fact that they have helped OpenEnvoy generate real revenue sets them apart.”
OpenEnvo is one of eight startups joining ZEBOX America’s first cohort.
