It Is Summer – But Slush Is Just Around The Corner
Ticket sales are open. Companies, investors and media can register for the event to be held November 18-19th, 2014, in Helsinki, Finland.
Last year, Slush gathered 7,000 attendees and 1,200 companies from 68 countries, making it one of the biggest tech events in Europe. Slush featured 150 speakers on five stages, ranging from successful founders such as Ilkka Paananen (Supercell) and Niklas Zennström (Skype), to experienced executives like Jorma Ollila (former CEO of Nokia) and Wang Jiang (CTO of Alibaba Group).

This year Slush moves into a new venue. Not only will the move allow moderate growth, but more importantly the move will improve the experience for each individual attendee. The event will continue to bring you great content from globally recognized technology thought-leaders and top startups from the Nordics and beyond.
In fall 2008, a small group of Finnish entrepreneurs got together over a pint of beer. What started there became an intimate gathering of 150 people a few months later. Although Slush has since grown to become one of the leading events of its kind in the world, the philosophy behind it has always remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward. Slush takes place every fall in wintery Scandinavia amidst one of the most dynamic tech ecosystems in the world. This is the seventh edition of Slush, put together by a community of entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
