Slush has grown from a 300 person assembly in Helsinki, Finland to a world-renowned event, now spreading globally. The philosophy behind Slush has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward. Since 2015, Slush has made Tokyo its home too, gathering 5,000 attendees in 2017.
Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. The very core of Slush is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a world-wide startup community.
Slush is a student-driven non-profit movement operating all over the world. In 2015, Slush was organized in Tokyo and Beijing for the first time. In 2016, Slush took over Tokyo, Shanghai, and Singapore.
In addition to the global community events, Slush is expanding rapidly to other parts of the world. They co-organize events together with the most prominent startup hubs across all continents.
