GET IN THE RING
Get in the Ring is a non-profit event concept, initiated by the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship to bring the most promising entrepreneurs from around the world in contact with investors and to inspire visitors to start their entrepreneurial journey.
The Investment Battle is the international competition of Get in the Ring, where entrepreneurs try to secure their investment of up to €1,000,000. The battle takes place between July and November, with the grand finale during the Global Entrepreneurship Week in the Netherlands on the 22nd of November 2013.
The Investment Battle consists of three rounds and is organised in collaboration with many international partners. During the first round, called The Nationals, national hosts are responsible for the selection of the best entrepreneurs in their country. Next, the selected entrepreneurs will present their company during the second round, The International Clash, at the Sprout Challengerday. A panel of experienced investors, together with the visitors of the Sprout Challengerday, one of the biggest entrepreneurship events in the Netherlands, will have the final vote . They will decide which eight entrepreneurs get the chance to pitch in front of four international Champions at the final of Get in the Ring.
The Investment Battle offers great opportunities for both organisers and participants. The international orientation and the unique way of pitching provide a fruitful ground for inspiration, networking and investments.
