GITR CleanTech Rotterdam

GITR CleanTech Rotterdam

On the 29th of April 2015 ECE will host the GITR CleanTech Rotterdam together with the Rotterdam municipality. This will be the first 2015 local final in the Netherlands. Unlike previous years, startups now have multiple opportunities via local finals to pitch their startup and to participate in Get in the Ring.  The CleanTech Rotterdam is one of these local finals in the Netherlands. This local final will precede the National Final, and the finalists and winners will be awarded with some great prizes (read on!).

Participating startups will pitch their startups multiple times to investors and business leaders in the hopes of earning a spot in one of the battles.  What makes this event so unique is that all of the participating startups, as well as all of the investors and jury members, are passionate about clean technologies.  Winning startups are automatically placed for the Dutch National Finals in November. Other prizes include:

  • A spot in the Clean Tech Tour Final in May 2015.
  • The 6 finalists (2 per weight class) will receive a CE Booster membership valued at €249.  In addition the finalists will receive a Clean Tech Delta membership valued at €500,-.
  • The 3 winners (1 per weight class) receive a Business Membership to the ECE valued at €1.800,-.
  • The 3 winners (1 per weight class) move on to the Dutch National Final on November 20, 2015.

The jury for this event will include among others Fred van Beuningen (Clean Tech Delta), Peter van Gelderen (Icos Capital), Henk Barentsen (Investeerdersclub), Damien van der Bijl (InnovationQuarter), Robin Slakhorst (Symbid), Job Nijs (The Venture Generator), Mark de Jong (Investeerdersclub), and Erwin Koenraads (Get in the Ring Global).
