$1 trillion in assets under management
THE WORLD’S LARGEST GATHERING OF VENTURE CAPITAL
Slush 2022 was joined by a group of 2,600 investors from pre-seed to growth in search of the next breakout company. In 2019, more than 10,000 pre-booked investor-startup meetings took place at the event.
Our Matchmaking Tool is there to help you find the most relevant investors and propose a sit-down meeting.
Accelerate your own growth
There is a good reason why this is literally known as “the most valuable part” of the Slush experience for founders and operators in previous years.
At Slush 2022 we were offering startups an opportunity to participate in private mentoring sessions with our Builders’ Studio speakers, who answered your very own questions relating to their keynote topics.
€1,000,000 Investment from 5 Top VCs
Slush 100 this year is an entirely new take on the pitching competition you know and love. How, you might ask?
It’s simple: the winner of the Slush 100 Pitching Competition 2022 will receive a €1M investment from Accel, General Catalyst, Lightspeed, NEA, and Northzone.
These are 5 VCs that have never collaborated on this kind of early-stage startup project, but at Slush 100, they’re all coming together to be part of every step of the competition and beyond. Plus, winners will get 1-on-1 mentorship from all VC partners involved after the competition.
You don’t want to miss this.
