Slush is the focal point for startups and tech talent to meet with top-tier international investors, executives, and media. In 2016, Slush brought together 17,500 attendees from 130 countries for the two-day event held in Helsinki, including more than 2,300 startups and 1,100 investors. The conference features two days full of stage program, in addition to several side events, talks at networking sessions, roundtable discussions and facilitated workshops.

Slush is a non-profit event organized by a community of entrepreneurs, investors, students and music festival organizers. Although Slush has grown from a 300-person event to become one of the leading events of its kind in the world, the philosophy behind it has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward.
Slush is a two-day conference with the official program running from 10:00 to 18:00.
The event is open to anyone over the age of 18. You just need to purchase a ticket. You can do it here!
