The aim of the collaboration is crystal clear: Slush is a world-leading facilitator of meetings between investors and startups, and we want to extend our matchmaking power to the Indian ecosystem. We’re aiming to help the Indian tech entrepreneurs to connect with top-tier investors, partners and media, both on local and global level.
Heard of Small Talks before? You probably get the gist. Top executives and VCs sharing their thoughts on currently trending topics in tech. Fireside chats, panel discussions, mingling, real talk from founders of up-and-coming companies: stuff you actually want to hear about. We’ll feature both Indian startup ecosystem and their suitable European counterparts. Themes for the first Small Talks in India will revolve around growth and user acquisition. How to lead a team which is growing at fast pace? How to get your first thousand customers? How about ten, hundred thousand?
Hear it and learn it from this bunch. Speakers include the likes of Peter Vesterbacka (former Mighty Eagle at Rovio, the makers of Angry Birds) Ville Vanhala (Co-Founder of Brella), Gourish Sinla (Chief Strategy Officer of Shivom), Adibeli Nduka-Agwu (Director of International Growth at Blinkist), Otso Rasimus (Founder of Valohai) and Florian Jourda (First Engineer at Box).
The concept of Slush Small Talks is a perfect example of what the Slush ethos is all about. Our events are always first and foremost about founders, by founders: this year, we’ve already hosted Small Talks events for founders in Stockholm and Berlin. London and Paris are soon to follow. Why India? It’s one of the fastest-emerging tech hubs in the world. All things tech move with the speed of light in India at the moment, said Anisha Singh, founder of Mydala.com,in her recent interview with us. Enough said.
