Our Startup Scout, Emma Kluwen, attended Slush in Helsinki.

“Together with the YES!Delft student board, I represented YES!Delft at Slush Helsinki. With an amazing light and sound show, the first keynote of Slush 2017 in Helsinki was given by Al Gore. He talked about the great contributions of all the tech start-ups at the event to the world’s sustainability. After the opening, the 20.000 attendees moved towards the different stages of the venue (start-up square, founders stage etc.) where the event could begin. A dynamic mix of founders pitching their ideas, investors showing interest in start-ups and people exchanging business cards.

The main purpose to join Slush for me was to find out where the Robotic Hubs are based in Europe. YES!Delft and RoboValley are going to start the first European Robotics Accelerator in May 2018. I talked to a lot of different people about this topic and went home with some valuable feedback.

At Slush, you also have the possibility to book meeting places for 30 minutes. A great way to escape the hectic Slush floor and have intakes with potential candidates, which I did.

Slush is the perfect place to get inspired, connect and build your start-up further.”
