What is the Global Meetup?

The Global Meetup is the final of the Global Startup Competition Get in the Ring. Each season we gather the best startups at the grandest showcase of unconventional solutions The Global Final. Founders from more than 100 countries come together, make business deals with corporates and investors and battle for the title of Global Winner. For this year’s edition we are returning to the city where Get in the Ring was born – The Hague, Netherlands.

Curious how a virtual Global Meetup looks like?

During the global Covid-19 pandemic we hosted an online meetup in 2021 with founders and investors from all over the world who met virtually in over 100 virtual dealmaking meetings in four thematic tracks.

The show must go on – the legendary Global Final Battles was recorded with the Ringmaster in a teater with the startup finalists and champion jury calling in from their home office. The result? Four battle videos and four global winners!
