Standing at the epicenter of one of the most dynamic startup ecosystems on the planet, Slush, the leading startup conference in Northern Europe and Russia, takes place on November 13-14th, 2013 at the Cable Factory in Helsinki, Finland.
Slush is a nonprofit, two-day technology and startup event where the most promising companies from Northern Europe, Russia and beyond gather to meet with top-tier investors and media from all around the world. It is organized to allow the next generation of great companies to have the ecosystem they deserve to succeed on a global level. To accomplish this, not only do we bring the best investors and companies to the same place, but also we make sure that the right companies meet the right investors in one-on-one meetings.
In 2008-2012, Slush has transformed from a 300-person event to become one of the top startup events in the world, attracting more than $40 billion worth of venture capital, some of the world’s top media, plus 3,500 attendees in 2012. This year, Slush is growing to become one of the largest events of its kind in the world.
Slush is organized yearly by Startup Sauna, the Helsinki-based seed accelerator which was recently rewarded as the top young university accelerator in the world by UBI Index.
