HiPe Kids was among the 17 companies competing in the recently conducted Get in The Ring event held in Sophia Antipolis on October 24th of 2019.
About the Event:
Get in The Rings is an unorthodox start-up pitching competition that puts company founders against each other in a real-life boxing ring. Each representative has a fixed time limit to pitch innovative solutions. The scintillating atmosphere is all but complete with an MC taking charge of the event. The setting adds a competitive spark, often inspiring founders to raise the bar when delivering passionate speeches. Each team is given roughly 2 and a half minutes to present their innovative ideas. The final round consists of a Q&A session with the judges and the audience. The UK-based firm marched towards victory largely thanks to the exuberant charisma of its founder; Carmina Catena. HiPe Kids are now lightweight category champions and will represent France in the Get in The Ring’sGlobal Competition, which invites entrepreneurs from over 100 countries.
