Our trip to Hyderabad, India turned out to be awesome! It was the first time we ever set foot in Hyderabad and the local community did not disappoint us! More than 100 people were attracted to the magic of Get in the Ring Hyderabad which was held at T-Hub. T-Hub is the biggest startup accelerator in India and that connect startups from the vast Indian startup ecosystem.

The event was  a blast  in the startup community and  widely covered by Indian media outlets such as The Hindu, one of the  biggest English newspaper in India!

The CEO of T-Hub, Jay Krishnan was also part of the event. The director commented a few words on the Get in the Ring concept.

“Get in the Ring for me is a proof of two things: the ability to see some of these fabulous startups that inspire real challenges, and the fact that we see this community build out of what is happening locally.”

Especially for the event in T-Hub, co-founder of Get in the Ring Hendrik Halbe flew in to be the honorary Ringmaster! He gave the startups tips and tricks on how to perform better on stage. Twenty-four startups initially participated, out of which six were selected to face-off in the Ring later that day. The audience became more and more anxious to see which startup was going to deliver the knockout pitch. All startups were promising but only one winner got a spot at the Global Conference in Singapore!

THE WINNER
AnyTimeLoan.in is the instant loan destination. Everyone needs that small, instant loan to meet that unexpected demand and someone always looks for a better avenue to park their savings and create wealth. AnyTimeLoan.in is solving this very need by using technology to generate revenue on every loan originated as a flat processing fee and also on every loan that successfully closes as transactional revenue. The very proposition of instant, on the go, 24/7 access to loans (paperless and contactless) makes the startup very unique, providing an opportunity of over 4 billion USD.
