Slush is a global movement, supporting the next generation of founders. It’s a not-for-profit event organized by a community of entrepreneurs, investors, students, and festival organizers.
In 2018, Slush gathered more than 45,000 people in 75 events all around the world, from South Africa to Tokyo. The Slush year culminates in Helsinki in December, when 20,000 founders, investors, media and executives from 130+ countries gather in Helsinki.
Held during the darkest time of the year, Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. The very core of Slush is to facilitate founder-investor meetings and to build a worldwide startup community. In 2018, more than 1800 investors and 3000 startup companies came to Helsinki for the event.
Slush is run by a community of students who want to radically change how entrepreneurship is perceived in Northern Europe and beyond. Several successful entrepreneurs, from the founders of Supercell and Spotify among others, have already become a part of the not-for-profit initiative that has already become a movement of global magnitude.
