Full Disclosure: Technical.ly Philly organizes the Switch Philly event and Philly Tech Week, though this reporter is not involved in the planning.

One student startup will get to pitch to First Round Capital, but first that founder has to win Switch Philly.

Five startups with college founders will demo during our annual Switch Philly judged competition during Philly Tech Week presented by AT&T next Wednesday, April 9, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at First Round Capital’s headquarters.

They’ll pitch to a lineup of judges that includes DreamIt Ventures managing partner Karen Griffith Gryga and Independence Blue Cross‘s Director of Innovation Tom Olenzak. The winning prize pack also includes a 90-minute pitch session at Osage Partners and three months of free space at Venturef0rth.

Switch Philly takes on a different theme each year. Last year had an edtech focus and the year before that was mobile.
