SwitchPitch is startup engagement platform connecting established companies with startup innovation. The platform is changing the way big and small companies do business together - the LinkedIn for business development. On SwitchPitch, startups and other small businesses post their “profiles” and large enterprises who need projects done hire the startups to do those projects.
The platform consists of a database of 35,000+ startups / SMEs; and a Marketplace where enterprises can publish internal projects that they can’t undertake themselves, due to staffing and/or business development constraints – and match those projects with startups or SMEs that can.
The projects range from nice-to-have ancillary needs to larger corporate problems with core business lines. Startups / SMEs then bid on the projects.
By harnessing the power of the marketplace, large enterprises now have the ability to easily post a project and outline their needs, such as company model, budget, timeline, necessary business inclusions, and solution expectations. They can include images, PowerPoint and videos. We then promote the projects to our network of global startups, which are tagged according to industry so startups can see projects specifically relating to their business model.
Identify: Once the account is created, platform clients search our database of 35,000+ startups / SMEs to identify relevant small companies for their projects.
Qualify: Clients easily post a project, from nice-to-have ancillary needs to vexing problems with core business lines. They outline their project needs, such as company model, budget, timeline, necessary business inclusions, and solution expectations.
Engage: SwitchPitch promotes the projects to our vast network of global startups / SMEs who are tagged according to industry, so they can see projects specifically relating to their business model. Startups / SMEs develop innovative solutions using either their existing technology or custom-build solutions that play on their unique abilities. Startups / SMEs post a bid and the big company is notified to visit the platform.
Track: Enterprise clients review the bid, keep the startup informed of the review process, and let the startup know if it is a finalist. Clients track startups using tags, notes and watch lists. Clients then sets up interviews, chooses a small company, and the deal gets done. Deal details are logged on Connect for ongoing tracking.
