Philippe also talks about how influencer marketing can be really effective and why focusing on a portfolio approach to building mobile apps may be a smarter way to go instead of placing one big bet on a single app.

Our guest, Michael Goldstein, is the founder of SwitchPitch, a business development marketplace that connects startups with big businesses with pre-approved budgets for technology projects.
Throughout Michael's many entrepreneurial ventures, he learned that many large corporations had needs that can be filled by startups, but startups just didn't know how to connect with the right people and learn about these needs.
He soon realized that that there is a ton of opportunity for startups and big corporations to work together, and he's making that process easier with SwitchPitch.
Michael tells us how he has launched SwitchPitch events in multiple cities and how he's building an online platform to quickly scale.
