An online application form must be submitted by Nov. 21, 2014. To be eligible, a company cannot have had any commercially available products or services prior to January 1, 2013 and must provide solutions to firms manufacturing plastics or using plastics as a material within their product. 

The NPE2015 Startup Garage reflects the proliferation of new ventures in today's rapidly evolving marketplace, according to Brad Williams, SPI's director of trade show sales and marketing. "NPE represents the entire plastics supply chain, from suppliers to processors to brand owners and OEMs, including all of the leading established companies in the industry," he said. "We have created the NPE2015 Startup Garage to ensure the inclusion of new ventures, whose innovative approaches will further the growth of our industry and benefit the companies in it."

"The NPE2015 Startup Garage is an unprecedented opportunity for startup companies with connections to the plastics industry," said Gerard Eldering, founder of Startup.Directory. "Participants will be meeting hundreds of potential buyers, investors, distributors and strategic partners, all in one location,"
