London, UK – The first UK finals of international pitching competition Get in the Ring took place on Monday 2 November at WeWork Moorgate. A bustling crowd of entrepreneurs, investors and start-up enthusiasts saw some of the best UK start-ups from sectors as diverse as Healthcare, Robotics, Music and Photography pitch their business to the Champion judges from Ariadne Capital, WhiteSpaceVC and Business Angels Finance International (BAFI). They ultimately chose Choosic, ZipCube and The Selfcare People as the big winners of the night.
