As we’re crossing the one month milestone, it’s time to shed some light on the massive greyness that will be Slush 2012 – the biggest meetup for startups, tech and design community in the region and a super-convention of investors from around the world.
One might’ve thought the program was already looking busy with an exclusive Jolla unveiling of their new Sailfish OS, Skolkovo Foundation showcasing the most fascinating startups of Russia, MTV Media hunting for the best startup in Finland, and an awe-inspiring list of attending influencers, entrepreneurs and changemakers. As you now notice, Slush is only warming up.
Head to the speaker gallery to meet our latest additions to tech, design and business tracks as well as the just announced medtech and cleantech concentrations. We’re also honored to host Prime Minister of Finland, Jyrki Katainen, on the Slush main stage to welcome you to Slush 2012.
Slush also offers various opportunities for aspiring professionals and talented students to get recruited. And startups, heads up – the first startup track applicants have been accepted already, but the deadline for applications is until November 12th.
Needless to say, all this hullabaloo will not go unnoticed by international press. So far confirmed media attending includes GigaOM, Technode, PandoDaily, TechCrunch, Wired, Wall Street Journal, and TheNextWeb.
