Facilitating honest discourse
Matchmaking is in the very heart of Slush. Our purpose is to build connections and make new friends.
This year we are introducing Slush Matchmaking Tool for the first time in Singapore. Our Tool matches investors and startups based on their profiles. But sometimes making contact with a fellow investor is even more valuable.
Encouraging real discourse
The challenge of many panel discussions is that few people actually dare to share. To overcome the hesitation of speaking up their mind in front of an audience of 3000 attendees consisting of other investors, aspiring startups and media representatives, we are organising closed door roundtable discussions for investors only.
Investor Day, a wildly successful concept from Slush Helsinki, will be introduced for the first time in Singapore. The first 100 registered Investor Pass holders are invited to an exclusive event at Visa Innovation Centre on Monday, September 18 starting at 1.30pm. Forget keynote speeches and panel discussions, at Investor Day we focus on hands-on discussions and casual networking.
Our roundtable topics are curated based on the investor feedback
We’ll explore impact investing as it’s gaining popularity in Southeast Asia. Another hot topic is Corporate Venturing and we will share insights how to make it more successful. And why truly global funds are becoming more popular?
In the past the number of exits in SEA have been limited in number. What investors can do collectively to facilitate more exits? How angel investors and VCs can co-exist in startups? And could VC led collaboration create a more optimal startup ecosystem?
Family offices have a huge role in the Asian business environment. The second and third generation leaders acknowledge the innovation created by startups. What role family offices can play in the ecosystem?
Almost all industries will be disrupted in the coming years. AI, machine learning and blockchain technologies are changing how Venture Capitalists and Limited Partners will work in the future.
