But why are so many people flocking to Helsinki in November?
Slush is a student-driven, not-for-profit movement with the mission to create and help the next generation of groundbreaking entrepreneurs.
The Slush year culminates in Helsinki in November, when 25,000 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.
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.
