INVESTOR FOCUS STAGE
As a founder attending Slush, your Startup ticket offers a plethora of exclusive opportunities to maximize your event experience. Here’s what you get:
- Entry to the Slush 2023 main event as well as access to various side events, including our Founder Experiences and Founders Day that take place in Helsinki on Day 0
- The possibility to apply for a Startup Booth, to Startup Studio and to Slush 100 if eligible
- Access to our Matchmaking Tool which allows you to see who will be attending Slush as well as connect and book meetings with other attendees before and during the event
- Access to our Media Bank, where you can submit content about your startup and increase your chances of being covered by media
Our founder-focused Day 0 (Nov 29) events take place during the day, afternoon and evening. Founder experiences which take place during the day, will all start at 11:30 and will last a few hours depending on the experience you sign up for. This will leave you with plenty of time to visit your hotel, indulge in some Finnish cuisine and exercise your networking muscles prior to Founder’s Day, where doors will open at 18:00. The program will start at 18:45.
The team will select the Startup Studio speakers once the application period closes on Sep 7. Due to a very high volume of applications, this might take a while, but you can expect to hear back from us by the end of September.

I'm trying to purchase Startup tickets for my team but it says my application is pending. What should I do?
To ensure that our Startup tickets go to the right entities, the team will review each startup. Once we’ve reviewed and accepted your application, you’ll receive an email and will be able to purchase tickets for your team. Due to the high volume of applications, the review process can take a few days. We appreciate your patience!
Most investors coming to Slush want to be able to invest in the startups attending the event. For this reason, we require our Startup Ticketholders to have incorporated their companies prior to buying Slush tickets.
Slush reserves tickets for young, often tech-driven companies, aiming for rapid growth with a scalable business model. While we love to see these organizations at Slush, accelerators and incubators are unfortunately not eligible for Slush’s Startup tickets. We would direct these organizations to our Attendee tickets.
