SwitchPitch is a role-reversal event where established companies pitch funded innovation projects to qualified startups looking for great partners.
This isn’t Networking. This is deal-making.
This event is not about face time or bacon-wrapped apps, it’s about engaged large companies looking for qualified startups to complete pre-funded innovative projects for which large companies lack bandwidth. Be a part of this new wave in targeted business development.
