"The BridgeCommunity gives Pass It Down the chance to work with some of the world's top companies and to utilize our storytelling technology in a number of unique and powerful ways." 

The BridgeCommunity’s main objective is to help startups find the right customer inside the walls of large corporations. It receives world-class enterprise sales, marketing, and negotiations training to understand corporate innovation needs and the corporations are coached on minimizing roadblocks to streamline pilots and simplify contracts, said officials.
