Project Submission Platform
SwitchPitch is a role-reversal event where established companies pitch funded innovation projects to qualified startups looking for great partners.
How it works:
- At SwitchPitch events, large companies present their projects to an audience of high-quality startups, and startups who attend have an opportunity to “bid” on projects in which they’re interested and qualified.
- After the event, SwitchPitch provides this submission platform to event attendees so startups can submit their company details, qualifications for a posted project, and proposed plans. Startups who do not attend are permitted to submit proposals for to projects for a fee.
- Presenting companies use this platform to evaluate the best match for their project.

Aggregation Engine on the Edge: TWC needs to aggregate a lot of disparate localized data from many sources (Public, Private, Local, Tribal, County, State, Federal) as well as data TWC generates. TWC will offer localized (weather) data of multiple data types for several of the consumer favorite locations such as, current conditions, 10-day forecast, weather alerts, and road conditions for 20 favorite cities. The secondary component is the distribution of localized data which aggregates multiple API calls and leverages a cost effective caching strategy for distributed cache.
Alerting—Global Alerts: Alert coverage is based on a series of latitude and longitude coordinates which dynamically creates irregular shaped polygons. Zonal boundaries such as counties are fixed but are also irregular shaped boundaries. TWC delivers alert coverage and must notify each zone that is impacted by the event coverage. The complexity lies in translating the dynamic alert polygon coverage to the natural/national boundary polygons to illustrate the coverage over impacted zones.
User-Generated Content: TWC leverages and plans to increasingly leverage user generated content (UGC) for display across our distribution channels (TV/Media, Mobile, Web). Manually moderating all content which flows through our distribution channels is cumbersome and moderation automation will increase the flexibility to leverage UGC as well as the opportunity to promote and distribute the right quality content for each distribution channel.
Multi-Viewer Panel: Production teams require a multi-view player (MVP) which displays ‘thumbnail’ versions of all programming that are being recorded (26 channels at once). The thumbnails display live and let the user click on it for it to go full screen and display full audio as well.

Y&R is looking to create a web-based system where agency people (new business, account and strategy) would go and save stand alone slides with data points and information. The uploader would categorize slides. Then, when the agency needs to build a deck in the future, these objects can be easily accessed, browsed and put together. Agencies will use the tool to organize cases, data/statistics, consumer/market trends and agency credentials. The tool would enable users to search for, and then drag and drop a slide into one downloadable deck. Additionally, the tool will allow users to search for specific related decks, which can then be downloaded as well.
