About Get in the Ring!

Get in the Ring is the grand finale of a series of international startup competitions, part of the V4 Startup and Innovations Fastlane Tour.

The battle for investors is a unique show. Two entrepreneurs enter the boxing ring, where in they must “fight” to convince the jury within five rounds. Each round touches on different important topics, providing valuable information for investors, customers and potential partners.

The project was launched in 2009, initiated by the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, quickly growing from a local event to now a global movement. This year more than 5,000 participating startups from 100 countries will compete.
