Slush Helsinki 201918

Slush is a student-driven, not-for-profit movement on a mission to help the next generation of groundbreaking founders.

Its startup track is tailored for young, often tech-driven, companies aiming for rapid growth with a scalable business model. Whether you’re looking for investors, customers, talent, media or advisors, you’ll find them all lined up in Slush Helsinki.


Slush Helsinki is the largest gathering of venture capital in the world, attracting 2,000 key investors searching for the next breakout company. Last year more than 10,000 pre-booked investor-startup meetings took place at the event.

If you fancy a seat at those tables, just use our Matchmaking Tool to find the most relevant investors and book a meeting with them. Over $200 billion in assets under management are just one click away.

Partners and customers

Tech giants and industry tycoons aren’t coming to Helsinki to enjoy the subtropical Finnish climate – they come here for business.

Whether you’re looking to strike a deal with a growth company or shake hands with Fortune 500 executives, you’re planning a trip to the right destination.

Go ahead and start prospecting potential partners and customers from a pool of more than 4000 companies also making their way to the event.


We’ll let you in on the best-kept secret of Slush Helsinki: all of our speakers dedicate one hour of their time to mentor startups attending the event.

Dive into your company’s pain points in 1-on-1 sessions or figure out the bottlenecks of growth together with a curated group of your peers, experienced entrepreneurs, operators, and investors.

And the best part? The network stays with you for the next time there’s a bump in the road.


More than 700 journalists representing the leading technology and business publications come to Slush Helsinki in search of emerging startups and exciting product launches.

If you’ve ever dreamt about your startup’s moment in the international spotlight, prepare your media pitch and tell your story on a global scale.

The likes of Forbes, Wired, and Techcrunch have covered startups making waves in the event.

Peer support

While in Helsinki, you’ll have plenty of time to kick it with your fellow founders and operators, who are most likely going through similar struggles to your own.

Founders Day and industry-specific side-events are known to be great opportunities to get that precious support from those who can really relate to your challenges and exchange notes with the competitors. It is guaranteed that there’s a thing or two you all can learn from each other.


When you add together startups looking for new hires and a crowd of 25,000 tech-savvy changemakers, you have a recipe for one of the biggest recruiting events in Europe.

From the brightest young minds to seasoned operators and executives, Slush has got all the bases covered. Best of all, the recruitment features of our Matchmaking Tool are exclusively available to startups and scaleups.


This event avoids the platitudes and providing the most concrete and painfully tactical advice for startups on our stages.

You won’t come to Helsinki just to be another face in the crowd, but it is advised to take a note from the brightest startups minds stepping on stage. There’s a lot to learn from the journey and the best-kept secrets of the fastest growing companies in the world.
