How Get in the Ring Works

Get in the Ring is a global competition for startups. Two startups battle head-to-head in a ring via pitches. A battle between two teams consists of several rounds about the team, the business model and its finances. Along the way the entrepreneurs were given pitch training, advice about their businesses, and the opportunity to get in contact with investors, business leaders, potential customers and like-minded entrepreneurs. There can only be one winner in each weight class based on valuation (lightweight – 0-$500,000, middleweight – $500,000 – $2.5 million, heavyweight – $2.5+ million).

The Grand Champion of Get In The Ring Ottawa will be flown to Berlin, Germany for the Global Final.
