The annual start-up tech-event Slush was once again organized last week, on the 21-22nd of November, 2019. The event gathered together over 25 000 attendees, +3 500 start ups, and over 2000 investors from all over the world.
Slush is the number one place for Finnish and international tech-people and companies to come together and share their knowledge, ideas and accomplishments in the most unique environment. The year of 2019 was no exception when it came to the quality and interest of all the speakers at the event, giving the audience a full view on variety of topics in the technology-based start-up world. You can relive the talks of Slush 2019 here.
This year LVS Brokers teamed up with Ukko.fi to create Slush a side event like no other. Under the Deck took place in the stowage of the three masted schooner Kuunari Kathrina.
The beautiful wooden ship offered the perfect surroundings for a fintech get-together, for our clients and stakeholders. All together we had +70 people stepping aboard with us on the 20th of November. The side event included of course sailing inspired food and drinks, along with inspiring entrepreneurship stories.
Fintech Finland and Helsinki Business Hub also hosted a side event called Fintech Crash Course, which LVS Brokers attended. The sold out event featured a panel titled Where’s the Nordic fintech industry heading to and how to get onboard, moderated by LVS Brokers’ Chief Business Development Officer Anni Salo.
