Company Description

SwitchBin is a technology startup which plans to automate the process of trading in and buying new devices with its revolutionary kiosk. Buying a new phone shouldn’t feel like visiting the DMV, and with SwitchBin, the upgrade process has been designed to be simple, fast, and secure. Wireless carriers and retailers need an answer to the labor crisis and we believe SwitchBin's automated solution is it. SwitchBin is pre-revenue and in its prototyping phase. The current product is capable of both delivering a new phone and handling a trade-in without activation. Future development is anticipated to take six months after funding and will allow for the fully designed experience including the app based solution..
