The winners are looking for your support!

Get in the Ring is all about creating Fans. We would like to use this platform to showcase a challenge from each of the three winners for which they could use your support as a fan!

Blue Battery is looking for an introduction to innovation managers of utility companies, such as water purification, electricity or grid operation, in order to do a first small scale pilot project with their 1.5m x 1.5m x 1.5m battery that runs on water and table salt.

Laevo is looking for an introduction to C-level managers of companies which require personnel to do heavy lifting, as well as companies who have health-and-safety high on the agenda. For example logistic operators like Amazon, Doc-data and Albert Heijn.

NettCity is looking to collaborate with 10 municipalities to do a first rollout of their machines. They are therefore looking for introductions within large-to-medium sized municipalities with at least 3000 tonnes of wood (forests, parks, etc). Examples are Arnhem, Amsterdam and Groningen.


If you think you can support our winners with these challenges or be their newest customer, investor, partner or employee, please contact us and we’ll connect you with the startup.

Last but not least: save the date, November 17, 2016, for next year’s edition of the Dutch National Final of Get in the Ring. Will you be joining us again? Leave your contact details here and we will be sure to keep you updated on applications, tickets and selection rounds
