Get in the Ring (www.getinthering.co) aim to support startups globally in making connections to investors and business leaders. The concept started as a pitch competition where 2 startups battle in a ring in front of jury members and large audiences during a highly energetic and fun show. Over the past years, Get in the Ring has grown into much more than just a startup competition. We are now active in 80+ countries, organize more than 130 events every year and work with over 10,000 startups.
