The full agenda of the first ever Slush Singapore has been released. The overarching themes at the first ever Slush Singapore will show you what the world could look like in 2026. With entrepreneurs going on stage to share their stories of their struggles before the success. The event offers a mix of talks, fireside chats and panel discussions by tech veterans and new-comers from Asia and the world. Here’s a little preview of what you can expect.
Future Stage – a Window Into Tomorrow
The Future Stage will feature exciting talks on topics covering unmanned vehicles, the future of Asia, how big companies respond to the startup revolution and the future’s talent management, just to mention a few. We have the chance to welcome speakers like Eric Migicovsky, Founder & CEO at Pebble, John Collison, Founder of Stripe, Karoli Hindriks, Founder of Jobbatical and Dillon Seo, Co-Founder of Oculus, as well as investors like Khailee Ng, Managing Partner at 500 Startups, Saemin Ahn, Managing Partner at Rakuten Ventures, Vinnie Lauria, Managing Partner at Golden Gate Ventures, and Pieter Kemps, Vice President of Sequoia Capital.
Live Stage – Kopi Chats And Inspiration
Our Live Stage will bring you the true Singapore spirit in the form of a cozy coffee shop – or how we call it here in Singapore, kopi tiam. Entrepreneurs will gather around the coffee table to talk about their journeys, share their challenges and celebrate their successes. Some of the speakers include Darius Cheung, Co-Founder & CEO at 99.co, Pieter Walraven, former Founder at Pie, which was sold to Google, Hugh Mason, Co-Founder of JFDI, the first accelerator in Singapore, Suresh Shankar, Founder of Crayon with a successful startup exit under his belt, Prakash Somosundram, Founder of Pealo and Vice-Chairman of ACE (Action Community for Entrepreneurship), Hossan Leong, Founder of Double Confirm, Pranoti Nagarkar, the brains behind the famous automatic roti machine Rotimatic, and Titan Lee, Growth Hacker who led some of Singapore’s most successful crowdfunding campaigns.
But don’t let the coziness of the kopi table fool you – despite a more private setup, these chats will be broadcasted to our international viewers through Facebook Live!
Pitching Stage – Learn From Startups in Action
Out of over 600 applications reaching more than 800 Co-Founders, 30 exciting startups will clear their way to our Pitching Stage. In collaboration with Channel NewsAsia and Startup Sauna, Slush Pitching Competition will see the top startups pitch to the jury of investors and serial entrepreneurs. The finalists will move to the Future Stage for a chance to charm the big audience. Observe how seasoned seed-stage companies pitch to raise funding and secure the best funding opportunities in Asia. You don’t want to miss this!
But what happens in-between the rounds? Something called reversed pitching. In these showcase rounds lead investors will actually get on stage to pitch to startups they’ve invested in. You don’t want to miss this one either!
