MASSIVE NEWS. If someone is the embodiment of Slush 2017 theme, Call For Solvers, it must be Al Gore. We are honored to have you join us in Helsinki. #slush17 Link
THAT'S ALL FOLKS. 17 500 attendees from 124 countries including 2336 startups, 1146 investors & 610 journalists!… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
Over the weekend we have learnt that there have been some harassment incidents during the afterparty of Slush 2016. We are deeply sorry and disturbed to learn about this. We thought we were better than this. The entire Slush crew has been proud to have in a few short years gone from a male-dominated event to one, where 35% of attendees are women. We are committed to 50-50 by 2020. We have already received concrete suggestions on how we should tackle this issue and are already working on the ways to prevent any form of harassment in the future. The next Slush is still 360 days away but we think that the change should start already before that. It should start today. Rest assured, anyone who behaves like this, is not welcome to our events in the future. We have zero tolerance for assholes.
The Winner of Slush 100 Pitching Competition is @CybelAngel! Congratulations and get ready to celebrate tonight!
