Slush is a global movement, an amalgamation of ideas that manifests in communities and conferences around the world. This year, that will translate to our Pitch Competition as well, which takes an international twist in the form of our prizes.
We are exhilarated to announce the theme for our pitch competition. The World Domination Tour – where winning startups will be taken to startup capitals of the world for an experience of a lifetime.
We are working with strategic partners to send each winning startup on a trip to different cities, to explore opportunities and gain insider access to those markets. Regardless for inspiration or market expansion. Slush strives to be the bridge between startups, corporate organisations and the world. We are here to help startups conquer the world.
What’s more valuable than money – things that money can’t buy. We want to go one step further in empowering startups by creating tangible takeaways, experiences and insights for them. Leveraging on the existing regional and global networks of our partners, we want to form connections and create encounters that are simply out of reach.
