There is no way you haven’t heard about the Hannover Messe. It is the world’s biggest industrial fair that gathers 6,500 exhibitors and 250,000 visitors every year. And what is even more special this year: Get in the Ring will be part of it!

Let’s cut to the chase and introduce the ‘Meet the Industry Giants’ concept. HightechXL, High Tech Campus, Holland Innovative and StartupDelta created a 2-day program aimed at connecting startups to those sometimes hard to reach corporates. If you are looking to work with industry leaders who could become your (launching) customer, mentor or even your lead investor, now is the time to do it. We are looking for startups from the Netherlands and Germany, in the themes; Industry 4.0, Mobility, Energy, Research & technology. Based somewhere else, but still want to participate? Give it a shot, we’re happy to welcome startups from the rest of the world as well.

The largest Industry Giants will be at the Hannover Messe, on the first day the participating startups will get the opportunity to mix & match with some of these Giants. The most promising startups will be selected to pitch the next day, facing-off in the Ring for honour and glory. As cherry on the cake: the winner of the battles will go to the Get in the Ring Global Conference in Singapore in May!

If this opportunity is not exciting enough, let’s add some royalty & governmental glam. Undersecretary for the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Sander Dekker; the Dutch minister of Economic Affairs, Henk Kamp; and last but definitely not least: HRH Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands will also join us in Hannover!
