Get innovation done with the right startup partner

SwitchPitch is the ideal venue for a established companies to get their innovation projects off the ground by identifying high-quality outside startup resources perfectly suited to the project needs.

How it works:

  1. SwitchPitch Large Company partners are invited to present or “pitch” their innovation projects before a crowd of hundreds of high-quality startups at a SwitchPitch Event.
  2. Following the event, startups “bid” on the projects on SwitchPitch’s online submission platform, and SwitchPitch team members help to facilitate an efficient review of the bids and a seamless adoption of a startup partner for the project.
  3. Presenting companies use this platform to evaluate the best match for their project.

Using SwitchPitch to identify outside talent serves many corporate goals. Project execution is cost-effective and flexible without incremental full-time staff.  Large companies have opportunities to meet and engage with some of the most innovative people and companies in their communities, allowing for the possibility of long-term relationships. And employees of large companies are exposed to a different way of executing on goals from a startup partner’s perspective.

Please contact SwitchPitch for ideas of what kinds of projects work well in this unique new system.
