The Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, has announced opening of registration for the local version of the world championship ‘Get in the Ring’, which will be hosted for the fourth consecutive year.

This year, two winners of the local edition will qualify to represent Qatar in the finals, which is scheduled to be held in Berlin, Germany from June 17 to 19.

This year, Qatar Mall will host the local edition of the international championship at the iconic Oasis on April 28 where entrepreneurs will pitch their business ideas in a boxing ring in front of judges who will evaluate all contestants battling against each other in five rounds of 30-seconds each round.

This year’s edition in Qatar will witness the first bilingual competition in English and Arabic languages. A training workshop for participants will be held prior to the local competition.

Get in the Ring is a global competition started in 2012 by the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship in Holland, and since then has grown to include more than 100 countries worldwide.

Bedaya Centre general manager Reem al-Suwaidi said, “We have witnessed a strong turnout and active participation over the last three years in the local version of the Get in the Ring championship. Following the huge success we have had in the last three editions, we anticipate a stronger competition this year.

“To create an atmosphere of enthusiasm, we have collaborated with Qatar Mall to host the current version of GITR’s local competition. We hope to increase the level of community awareness about the importance of start-up projects and thereby contribute to the development of business in Qatar and provide all means of assistance by attracting various active parties and capable individuals in the country and encourage them to support this growing sector.”
