FGB Launches Partnership with Switch Pitch

FGB is excited to announce the partnership with the global platform for match making between large companies and startups

 FGB is excited to announce a partnership with Switch Pitch, the global online platform for match making between large companies and startups.

SwitchPitch enables enterprises to manage all innovation/startup relationships through our centralized Startup Relationship Management platform - enabling them to easily vet, manage and disseminate innovative startups internally to get deals done.

The partnership will have three components:

  1. Promoting SwitchPitch’s startup relationship management (SRM) platform to Italian and European enterprises
  2. Promoting FGB’s innovation consulting services, leveraging SwitchPitch’s platform
  3. Hosting a joint innovation event in Milan promoting enterprise innovation programs to an audience of invite-only startups

Many large Italian companies are focused on startup engagement through open innovation. While SwitchPitch has gained traction and popularity in many European countries, it has no presence or exposure in the Italian market. FGB operates six startup accelerators throughout Italy and is a major player in the Italian startup ecosystem. Having an Italian partner connected to the Italian startup community adds an invaluable resource to Italian enterprise prospects.

Through this new partnership with FGB, SwitchPitch will now offer Italian enterprises a platform for startup engagement, as well as managed services to handle Italian-focused startup research and diligence. FGB also brings a technology valuation tool to help enterprises assess the value of startups’ technology.

The combined forces of FGB and SwitchPitch provide a compelling open innovation solution for enterprises; as well as a business development resource for Italian startups. Our partnership combines the platform benefits of SwitchPitch and the high-touch, consultative approach of FGB. FGB is excited to partner with such a well-respected and talented team as Switch Pitch.
