Slush 2018 - Are You Ready?

As a startup, we're excitedly waiting for Slush, the biggest startup event in the world. But what to expect when you're expecting (Slush)?

“Welcome to the coolest tech conference on the planet.” – Tom Weihmeier, Partner and Head of Research at Atomico

Initially held during the darkest time in Scandinavia (literally), people from all over gather around in one of the most interactive and one-of-a-kind conferences ever held in the world. Started by a group of entrepreneurs, students and various investors, Slush is one of the most pivotal conferences to attend if you’re looking for talent to join your start-up, or just to get your brain juices flowing with inspiration and ideas! It follows one main guiding principle: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward.

Slush is built by entrepreneurs FOR entrepreneurs. Once you figure out an idea for the “next big thing”, it can be exceptionally difficult to just get the ball rolling. This is where Slush comes into play! Whether you need mentoring, media exposure, or even just advice, Slush brings together a global audience who knows and understands exactly what you need. Find others who know just as much as you, if not more, about specific aspects of things like data service, supply chains or software-as-a-service. In addition to invaluable advice from multiple investors (like Atomico, Softbank, and Tencent) and other entrepreneurs, you gain invaluable exposure to like-minded people, inspiring you to take your idea to the next level.

To seal the deal, Slush also has some remarkable founders and tech buffs joining the conference to share their advice with you. One of the speakers is Brian Hallagan: the Founder and CEO of HubSpot. He was named an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2011, and he’s in the process of writing how to turn your startup into a scale-up. Another notable speaker? Julia Grace: the head of Infrastructure Engineering at Slack. Julia has headed many venture funded startups across Silicon Valley and earned several patents in the process. She also serves as an advisor to several seed stage startups across the United States. With tech aficionados like them joining these symposiums and mentoring entrepreneurs like yourself, it’s worth your while to pitch your ideas at this global conference.

Oh, and then there’s the Finnish Logmore. (That's us, by the way.) If you’re attending Slush, come meet us at our stand! Maybe you’ll have ideas on how our services could be utilized or improved, or we could help you. Even if there’s no apparent common ground or basis for cooperation, you never know. In any case, we’re looking forward to meeting all of you.
