The Get in the Ring Foundation and HighTechXL are combining forces! Together we are launching a series of global Challenges. Through these Challenges we’ll connect the best high tech startups in the world to opportunities at renowned tech companies like Philips, ASML, and NTS Group in Eindhoven.


HighTechXL is the tech accelerator in Europe and it was even announced as one of the top five “World Top High Impact Incubation Programs 2015″ by UBI Global! At HighTechXL tech startups are always in the right place, regardless of whether they’re starting or scaling.


HighTechXL is the home of startups such as Manus VR, which created the first consumer VR glove and recently partnered with NASA; and 3Dbyflow, the first portable and multi-material 3D printer that can even 3D print food!


Our partnership allows us to provide tech startups with opportunities at some of the world’s leading tech multinationals and support them in selling and/or implementing their products successfully. Guus Frericks, CEO of HighTechXL, on the partnership:


We are extremely happy to partner with the Get in the Ring Foundation. By organizing these corporate Challenges together, we can attract the best startups from all over the world to join the ecosystem in the high-tech capital of the world.
