SwitchPitch is a role-reversal event where established companies pitch funded innovation projects to qualified startups looking for great partners.
SwitchPitch was created and is managed in partnership with Exhilarator, an accelerator that helps early and middle-stage companies reach the next stage of their success.
Founded in 2012, SwitchPitch plans to hold ten annual SwitchPitch events in cities ripe for forging relationships between established companies and startups in their markets. In addition to New York and Los Angeles in 2013, plans for 2014 include events in San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, Washington, London, and more. Keep an eye on our events page or subscribe to our email newsletter to stay up to date.
We are looking for Established Companies to pitch innovation project ideas that are key to their company’s success but falling to the middle of the priority list due to bandwidth constraints. This is a perfect chance to find talented, targeted outside startup resources to jumpstart those efforts.
If you are a Startup looking to find out what kinds of funded projects established companies are pitching to qualified early-stage companies, attend a SwitchPitch Event and have the chance to bid on projects that fit with the strategic focus and skill set of your company.
