The world’s leading startup and tech event Slush took place in Helsinki, Finland on 21 and 22 November this year – bringing together a global community of 25,000 startups, venture capitalists, policy makers, executives, media representatives, and students.
Organised by over 2,000 volunteers, Slush provides a platform for these curious minds to network through one-on-one meetings and discuss opportunities.
Attendees also have the opportunity to learn from some the most successful companies in the world through scheduled talks during each of the two days.
Topics covered included what is needed when taking your brand across the border, how to create successful products with alternative materials, and what regulatory challenges there are in the market.
