Over the past few years, Slush has become an emblematic event designed to give power to young shoots of the digital and technological industry. Slush is as well an international meeting between promising start-ups and investors. It can be considered a life-size incubator aiming at creating a virtuous ecosystem in which entrepreneurs, digital actors, investors, contribute in enriching each experience and where lasting partnerships are created.
Slush : A world-class event
This year, Slush brings together more than 20,000 members and has around 2,000 Start-ups and 1,500 investors. As in 2019, this edition will take place at the exhibition center in the city of Helsinki, in Finland, on 2021 December 1 and 2. Supported by Business France, 15 French start-ups are invited, including Numerized. It is a huge gathering which allows to get powerful networking, in addition to an introduction to pitching, webinars and coaching. Participants also have access to the matchmaking platform which allows them to identify not to be missed people (in particular investors for Start-ups and vice-versa, customers, etc.) during this meeting.
Redefining the conference objectives
The ambition of this global meeting is to rethink entrepreneurship with a view of building a healthier future, where search for profit is no longer the main motive. Besides, there is a desire to extend meetings between actors of the entrepreneurial revolution with those from other sectors of activity. It is no longer a question of focusing only on those who are already part of the digital industry, but allowing other organizations to contribute to the next change. There is therefore an urge to diversify the current landscape, to involve public entities, governments, education organizations, etc., with a view of giving birth to a new collaboration, more dynamic, inclusive and more representative of society. The interest is also to make young shoots aware and accountable about their planetary impact, both in environmental and societal terms.
