THE WORLD'S LARGEST
GATHERING OF VC
This year, we are expecting 1,500 investors representing over €300B in assets under management in Helsinki. They will be joined by 3,200 startup founders and operators. At no other gathering will you find the same critical mass of people you absolutely have to meet.
“I can pack a month’s worth of meetings into two days.”
At Slush, you will find 2,000 of the most promising startups from the Nordics, Europe, and beyond. Our bread and butter are early-stage ventures making this planet just that little bit better, but our startup demographic spans industries and stages.
What’s more, we won’t leave your next term sheet up to chance. Instead, we offer you the industry standard of tools to source & meet startups. In 2019, startups & investors pre-booked 10,000 meetings within our walls.
We bring 1,500 most prominent investors from around the globe to Helsinki. Whether you’d like to find follow-on investors for your portfolio, source deal flow from your peers, or just meet plainly amazing individuals, Slush is the place to be.
On top of the regular Slush program, you can join our exclusive Investor Day to discuss the investment landscape or catch up with old friends.
At Investor Day you will have the opportunity to meet your investor peers undisturbed by keynotes. We’ll be laser-focused on creating new connections through curated roundtable discussions and facilitated networking.
“It takes 20h to get here from San Francisco, but it’s absolutely worth it.”
“Slush attracts the best of everything.”
Investors and founders who have shaped the world will be on our stages. At Slush you can forget the usual stage platitudes, as our speakers are intensely concentrated on discussing how to solve problems faced by investors and their portfolio founders. This makes Slush the learning opportunity not to miss in 2021.
Hundreds of journalists from leading technology and business outlets will come to Slush 2021 seeking to write about investments that are shaping the world. Slush will be the place for you to tell your story, as the likes of Sifted, TechCrunch, and Forbes have covered investments made at Slush.
