Let’s start this article with simple question and proceed to more details after that. So what is Slush event? Slush event is two-day startup conference where the best talent from Northern Europe and Russia gets together to meet leading investors and media from around the world. There’s going to be more than 500 startups, 200 investors, 50 speakers, 2,500 guests(including me), from 21 different countries, so there’s something for everyone.
Where did Slush begin? Slush was founded by group of Finnish entrepreneurs in 2008, they wanted to bring startup scene together at least once a year.
