The world leader the Slush boot event will return with 12,000 visitors on November 17-18, 2022. First speakers were announced today and public ticket sales begin on May 25, 2022 at 10:00 GMT+3 at slush.org.
This year, 4,200 startup founders and operators and 2,200 investors are expected to join Slush. This group of investors manages almost a trillion in growth capital. “For a startup founder, this means that during Slush there will be exactly one investor per startup in Helsinki. There is no better place in the world for startups to raise funds,” says Eerika SavolainenCEO of Slush.
The on-stage program will feature top speakers from around the world, such as the legendary venture capitalist Doug Leonwho led private equity firm Sequoia for more than 20 years, Loreanne Garciathe founder of Kavak, one of Latin America’s most successful growth companies, and Nikolai Storonsky, the founder of the financial superapp Revolut. In total, Slush will bring together more than 150 speakers and moderators over the two days.
In addition to high-profile speakers, the Slush Stages will host the acclaimed Slush 100 pitch competition, as well as Builders’ Studio, a wildly popular new stage concept from Slush 2021 that unpacks a startup’s journey from idea to exit. Additionally, 200 side events will take place around Helsinki during Slush Week.
“Slush’s mission is to help and create entrepreneurs to change the world. In the years to come, Slush will focus on growing in relevance rather than scale, both in terms of visitors and content. We focus ruthlessly on early-stage startup founders and their needs,” says Savolainen.
