Posted by P. Charitha on April 7th 2017

Start-up fests, Start-up Drinks, Weekend Start-up events & elevator pitches are passé now! The latest is a face-off between start-ups! Now get into a ring, akin to a boxing ring and pitch for your start-up.The latest in the global start-up circuit is the  Get in the Ring Pitch (GITR),  which is a unique contest where start-ups based on their pitch will be scored on their team achievements, business model & market and their financials. 
 
The concept was started by the Get in the Ring Foundation in 2012, with a mission to reduce the failure rate of talented entrepreneurs and potential world changing innovations. GITR is a global competition being conducted through 150 such events across 100 countries. Through local, national and regional rounds, start-ups will proceed to the international final where the global winners will be announced. So start-ups stand a chance to qualify for the global finals and present their idea to a huge base of investors, mentors and other experts. 
 
The concept of Get in the Ring spread rapidly around the world and was introduced in India in 2015. In last two years that GITR has been in India it has seen a stupendous growth in terms of participation and application. About 71 applications were received out of which 24 start-ups were invited.
 
The third edition of Get in the Ring (GITR) was launched in Hyderabad at T-Hub, where selected 24 start-ups battled it out and out of which six start-ups were selected for the final competiton. A  Hyderabad-based start-up AnyTimeLoan won the competition after a daylong battle. It will compete with other global start-ups for the final of GITR  which will be held in  May 2017 at Singapore .
