Europe – the next center of innovation and technology?
In 2016, Slush took over Europe in various warm-up events that gathered together actors in the local startup communities, paving the way for the main Slush event in Helsinki in November. The warm-ups were kicked off in the summer Berlin where, in conjunction with Tech Open Air, Slush and Jobspotting organized a tech festival for 3,000 people, featuring 25 DJs and six stages. The tour continued in September-October in four cities, London, Munich, Amsterdam, and Berlin, for prominent actors in the startup scene.
This year, Slush will join forces with Startup Sauna and Junction to tour in even a bigger number of buzzing European startup hubs. Slush folks can be spotted in at least Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, Minsk, Warsaw, Berlin, London, Paris, Budapest, and Barcelona, bridging the communities across the continent.
