Four Reasons to Join Slush 2021 as an Investor

Wondering if the trip to slushy and dark Helsinki in December is actually worth it? We wanted to help you to make the right decision – See my four main reasons you should definitely join Slush this year.

1. Meet with founders in person (finally)

Our state-of-the-art Matchmaking Tool (hold on, it’s opening later) allows you to screen and meet face-to-face with 3,200 startup founders and operators effortlessly and efficiently. At no other gathering in Europe will you find the same critical mass of people you absolutely have to meet.

Additionally, our downloadable startup data set will provide you with more than 40 data points on each startup in attendance – helping you quickly and efficiently compare all the 2000 young ventures at Slush and make informed decisions on whom to meet.
