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.
Held during the darkest time of the year in Helsinki, Finland, Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. The very core of Slush is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a world-wide start-up community.
Slush is a student-driven, non-profit movement originally founded to change attitudes toward entrepreneurship. In 2018, Slush was organized in Tokyo, Shangai, Singapore and Helsinki.
In Helsinki, the event had 20,000 attendees, 2,600 start-ups, 1,600 investors and 600 journalists.
