Discover New Startups Faster
with Innovation TagsTM

SwitchPitch’s AI algorithms aggregate and analyze all relevant startup information – for over 100k startups! We tag startups using data from startups’ websites, news articles, startup databases and startups’ own inputs on their SwitchPitch profiles.

Startups’ innovations are tagged based on current and potential uses – rather than standard industry tags used for VC investing.

Can’t find a startup? Upload your own list and we’ll add to your account and include Innovation Tags.

Seamlessly Hand Off Startup Relationships

Invite your team, your division or your entire company – all SwitchPitch accounts come with unlimited access.

Don’t slow innovation down – get all relevant colleagues involved:

  • Innovation team manages Proof-of-Concept
  • Business units test startups’ innovation
  • Management tracks progress

Commercialize new products faster when everyone is involved!

Track Proof-of-Concept Outcomes

Startups & business units use workspaces to test Proof-of-Concepts.

Innovation teams manage the process using workflows to efficiently handle onboarding and testing. Keep the momentum going by enabling both startups and business units to contribute information.

Once PoCs are completed, easily report on PoC outcomes and build business cases to move forward. With faster testing, you’ll create competitive advantages for your company!
