Aalto University Executive Education partners with the tech conference Slush as it makes its debut in Singapore on September 20, 2016, at Resorts World Convention Centre during the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH).
Slush – described as “the center of the universe in technology right now” – is the leading tech startup and investors conference in Europe and the focal point for startups and technology talent to meet with first-rate international investors, executives and media.
In 2015, Slush brought together 15,000 attendees from a hundred countries for the two-day event in Helsinki. In 2016, Slush is spreading to Tokyo, Shanghai and Singapore. Program at Slush includes speeches by top-tier speakers, a demo area for startups, and a thrilling Slush Pitching competition.
Slush is not a typical tech conference – it is a student-driven, non-profit movement rooted in Aalto University. Throughout the years the philosophy behind Slush has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward. “At Slush, there's a spirit of changing the world”, describes Jyrki Katainen, Vice President of European Commission.
As a partner Aalto EE is also present in Slush Singapore. Welcome to meet us at our booth and learn how you can benefit from our impactful, goal-oriented and comprehensive learning experience and take the next steps in your entrepreneurial journey.
