The most humid season of Slush is back, bigger, better and bolder. This time around, over 3,000 entrepreneurs will gather in Singapore for the most international startup event in town. Mark your calendars for the September 19, with all the action happening in the convention centre of Marina Bay Sands.
Startups in Singapore attracted over US$1.4 billion in funding in 2016, rising from US$1.16 billion in 2015. With the amount of funding projected to increase in 2017, the startup scene in Singapore has never looked better. Slush Singapore provides a convenient location for startups to showcase their designs and for investors to look out for the next big thing.
Originally from Finland, Slush has become world’s leading startup movement. In 2016 , at the first Slush Singapore event, over 2,000 entrepreneurs , investors, journalists and youth, from 18 countries came together. This marked a new chapter of bridging dialogues between startup communities across Southeast-Asia and the world. In 2017, Slush is aiming to expand to accommodate 3,000 entrepreneurs, 250 startups and 200 investors, from over 20 different countries.
This year, Slush Singapore will focus on five themes, namely: Future Forward, Ethics – Into The Grey Area, Redefining Gaia – Building A Sustainable Planet, Our Connected World and Into An Entrepreneur’s mind.
