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 came to the place of magic of Get in the Ring Hyderabad- T-Hub. T-Hub is the biggest startup accelerator in India and connects startups from the huge Indian market.
The event was a blast in the startup community and widely covered by Indian media outlets such as one of the biggest English newspaper in India – The Hindu!
The CEO of T-Hub, Jay Krishnan was also part of the event. The director commented in few words 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, the co-founder of Get in the Ring Hendrik Halbe flew in to be the honorary Ringmaster! He gave the startups tips and hints on how to perform better onstage. Twenty-four startups initially participated, out of which six were selected for the 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 there was a spot for only one winner at the Global Conference in Singapore!
