Overview

WORLD’S LEADING STARTUP EVENT.

During what is – let’s be honest – the sh*ttiest weather season of the year, Slush brings together the leading actors of the global tech scene to Helsinki for something very special. Described by many as “Burning Man meets TED”, the event has grown in just a few short years to 20,000 attendees and 1 million live stream viewers.

Slush has grown from a 300 person assembly to a world-renowned event, now spreading globally. The philosophy behind Slush has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward.

Overpriced showcase event.

SLUSH was better when there was an impact track. More speakers from developing countries, particularly from Africa! Theme was great.

It was overall okay, but not as good as last year (2016). Compared to 2016 the food was terrible, waste bins weren't easy to spot and traffic was horrible when walking through the alleys and booths before/after a keynote.

:-) :-) :-) Superb! Event not to be missed! Little crowded, food can be better...but still best event you can imagine.

user picture Visitor

Chaotic event, positive general vibe, poor organization on many levels, worst one being their event app & match making tools.

Excellent planned serendipity once again. Inspiring launches and fruitful chance encounters, in addition to a few extremely productive working meetings.
