(Riverton, Wyo.) – Jason Kintzler, Founder and CEO of PitchEngine (and County 10) will join an all-star lineup of speakers Wednesday night in Riverton for TEDx Central Wyoming College. The event titled, “Innovation: Bringing Ideas to Life,” features special presentations from eight different speakers – all with a focus on ideas and innovation.
Kintzler, a graduate of Riverton High School, launched his technology startup, PitchEngine, in 2008 and has since written a book about the process called, “The New American Startup.”
“There’s never been a better time to do what you’re passionate about. I think in Wyoming, we’re well positioned to take advantage of our independence and work ethic to do big things,” explained Kintzler.
In his presentation, “Attainable Innovation,” Kintzler will explain how we all have the ability to innovate. And, how a clear vision and the drive to succeed are fundamental to inspiring others and gaining the momentum to see your vision become reality.
Since PitchEngine, Kintzler has created several successful projects and companies including County 10, Wyoming’s fast-growing online and mobile news source.
Other presenters on Wednesday include: Producers and Directors Phil Hessler, Galen Knowles, and Adam Schellenberg of “Far From Home: The Power of Human Connection and Storytelling”; Maxwell Wessell, a Harvard Fellow on “Change Isn’t in Your DNA”; John Kanengieter of Lander, “Rethinking Risk: Living Life Without a Net”; Ashlee Lundvall, “The News Adventure: A Story of Inspirational Innovation”; and Fremont County’s Anne Even, “Life Happens Outside the Comfort Zone.” The host for the evening is Chris Jones of Riverton.

Kintzler is the Founder and CEO of PitchEngine, a content creation platform that is now used by more than 45,000 businesses worldwide including companies like Pepsico, WalMart and Budweiser. He is the author of “The New American Startup” which details the story of how western independence and self‐reliance led him to create a disruptive technology from the unlikeliest of places. A former anchorman turned PR pro, Jason bootstrapped his startup PitchEngine beginning in 2008 as a celebration of Wyoming independence, forgoing the traditional startup path in favor of the road less traveled.
Jason regularly shares his passion for new media and business by speaking to groups of all sizes at events like TEDx, SXSW, PRSA and at universities like Stanford, USC and Marquette. He has been credited with “heralding in a new era of public relations” by creating “one of the PR industry’s most transformative innovations.” Jason and/or PitchEngine have appeared in several popular books including; Engage, Twitterville, Putting the Public Back in Public Relations, SocialCorp and Social Media Marketing for Dummies.
