The Slush Cafe will be as interactive as ever! Here, attendees will get the opportunity to share a platform with our speakers, and engage in friendly and open discussions in a relaxed environment. Since the microphones used for questions are soft and throwable, you’ll also be able to enjoy the unique experience of ‘playing catch’ with our speakers, when you converse.
If that isn’t intriguing enough, we’ll also have some interactive workshops and panels over a cup of coffee.
Attendees are welcome to take part in various workshops and sessions at the Dialogue Stage. The great thing about Slush Tokyo is that you’re able to meet new, absorbing people from all around the world. This stage provides you with chances to make friends with your future co-workers.
There will be speed dating contents, interactive tech, workshops and more. Simply put, go ahead and connect closely with people and experience some of the latest technologies. The more detailed agenda of Dialogue Stage will be published a bit later.
After receiving hundreds of applications, 80 distinguished startups will be chosen to compete in Slush Tokyo’s annual Pitch Contest. During the contest, all participants will be screened by international investors as they showcase their ideas on Pitch Stage. Day two of the event will see the finalists attempt to woo the judges and the audience alike. Make sure you keep an eye out for the Pitch Stage, especially when this year’s finals are held and the winner is announced! Meanwhile, you can read how last year’s winner is doing.
You can also check out the demo booths, located at the center of the venue, wherein over 40 prominent startups will display their work.
Following the exciting main event will be a thrilling after party which features a number of different bands and DJs. Stay awake!
