Domino’s Pizza Wants Select Startups To Be ‘#PoweredByPizza’

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — No one understands the power of an innovative, revolutionary idea more than Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ). And beginning immediately, the recognized world leader in pizza delivery wants to inspire groups — often brainstorming over pizza — with the proper food for thought.

Domino’s — who transformed the industry by pioneering pizza delivery more than 50 years ago — is looking to support the next great idea by launching its Powered by Pizza campaign.

At the forefront is the connection with project and business owners who utilize Indiegogo, a San Francisco-based crowd funding web destination (www.indiegogo.com). Domino’s will offer gift cards directly to individuals within the fundraising site who pledge support toward select projects reflecting great and innovative ideas.

“No one knows the power and possibility of a great idea more than Domino’s, having been the ones that truly revolutionized pizza delivery over fifty years ago,” said Russell Weiner, Domino’s Pizza chief marketing officer. “Gatherings that create great ideas often include pizza – and we want to do what we can to fuel the next revolutionary concept that will also continue to be celebrated fifty years from now.”

In addition, the “Pizzavestors” program, where about 30 startup companies all throughout the U.S. are treated to a $500 Domino’s Pizza gift card, will be an added part of the campaign – all in the spirit of fueling great ideas and encouraging organizations to keep up the good work.

Fans and customers can visit Domino’s on Facebook (facebook.com/dominos), Twitter (twitter.com/dominos) and Instagram (dominos.com/instagram) – and, along with any great ideas on the brain, use the hashtag #PoweredByPizza to get involved.
