Tech events are usually impressively lined up with the most accomplished and triumphant: their success is surely easy to recognize, but what’s much harder is to dig into their best kept secrets and the real practices they preach and work by.
This year, the on-stage and off-stage program is going all out to give you the best, hands-on advice by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
In 2017, over 2,600 startups, 1,600 investors, and 600 journalists from over 130 countries gathered to Slush to kick it with like-minded tech-heads while experiencing the phenomenal atmosphere.
Your secrets are not made for the grave
Ground shaking founders, successful investors, startup pioneers and tech aficionados – see who’s joining the event to share their best-kept secrets.
Not the Californian sun, but honest Slush
Slush has grown from a 300 person assembly to a world-renowned event, now spreading globally. The philosophy behind Slush has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies.
Held during the darkest time of the year in Helsinki, Finland, Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. The very core of the event is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a worldwide startup community.
Slush is a student-driven, a non-profit movement originally founded to change attitudes toward entrepreneurship. In 2018, Slush will be organized in Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore and Helsinki.
One of a kind community
Think of Slush as a collision of a festival and a conference. It’s not a business, but a community of people who love what they do. It is run by the youth who want to make a difference in their societies.
Several successful entrepreneurs such as Niklas Zennström (Skype & Atomico), Taizo Son (GungHo), Ilkka Paananen (Supercell), and Risto Siilasmaa (Nokia) among others, have already become a part of the non-profit initiative that is radically changing how entrepreneurship is perceived in Northern Europe, Japan, and China.
Making a positive impact
Slush wants to leave the world better than we found it, and so sustainability is a core part of how Slush operates. It is an EkoKompassi/EcoCompass certified event, and this is just the start.
Whether it is reducing our environmental footprint by using only tap water and biodegradable disposables, promoting diversity and equality in recruiting for social inclusiveness, or by using only green electricity for our event, we set the bar high for minimizing the harm we do while amplifying the good.
Hustling near and far
Over the past seven years, Slush has grown from a 300-person gathering to become a global community organizing more than 75 events with +40,000 attendees all around the world.
Each city and each community adds its own local flavour to the global network. Be it the cherry blossoms of Japan or the rhythms of Jamaica, we always like to throw some spices into the mix of entrepreneurs and tech.
