Founders Day brought together 130 startups from 20 countries. The program at Founders day aims to address real-time business issues and how to solve them. This provides an avenue for founders to learn from each others mistakes as they are happening rather than just waiting and letting them grow.

Investor Day brought together over 100 investors. As the goal of Slush is to foster entrepreneurial culture and strengthen the startup ecosystem of Singapore, Investor Day did precisely that by creating a forum for discussion targeted towards the local and international investors attending the event.
