Slush is the largest tech startup event in Europe. In 2016, over 17,500 people from 130 countries attended, including 2,336 startups, 1,146 venture capitalists and investors, and 630 journalists.
Slush has grown from a 300 man conference to a world-renowned event, now spreading globally. The goal of Slush still remains the same though: “help the next generation of world-conquering founders take a leap forward”. The core of Slush is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a world-wide startup community.
Think of Slush as a combination of a festival and a conference. Want to get an impression? Check out the video on this page or the one below! And make sure to check out the website: www.slush.org!
Slush 2017 will be organized on November 30th and December 1st in Helsinki Finland. YES!Delft Students can provide you with a place to stay of some sorts.
Well, there are a number of reasons why you should come with us to Helsinki!
- To get inspired! More than 2,000 startups present their product at Slush, just walking around, talking to the entrepreneurs and checking out what they have to offer is simply an amazing experience!
- To meet amazing people. The most succes entrepreneurs are all located in Helsinki at the end of November, so this is your chance to meet them, ask them for advice of just drink a beer with them!
- Awesome afterparties! Simply the best. No explanation needed.
What do we expect of you?
It’s easy, we expect you to be enthusiastic about entrepreneurship, have an open mindset and are keen on meeting new people!
