Get in the Ring: The American Startup Clash

The signature event of Global Entrepreneurship Week in Kansas City, the Kauffman Foundation brings the international competition 'Get in the Ring' to the United States for the first time.

In the final round of "Get in the Ring: The American Startup Battle," eight of America's most outstanding entrepreneurs will compete live in Kansas City for cash prizes and the chance to be crowned U.S. champion and proceed to the international finals in Rotterdam.

The U.S. national finals will feature startups delivering their best pitches, a panel of high-profile judges, and an evening spectacular complete with an actual boxing ring at center stage.

The U.S. event is made possible with generous support from U.S. national sponsor Sprint. Other support comes from Combat Brands/Ringside Inc., VentureBeat and KCPT.

Attendance is free, but registration is required and seats are limited.
