FAQ

What does the Startup ticket include?

As a founder attending Slush, your Startup Pass offers a plethora of exclusive opportunities to maximize your event experience. Here’s what you get:

  • Entry to the Slush 2024 main event as well as access to various side events, including our Founder Experiences and Founders Day that take place at the Slush Venue in Helsinki (Messukeskus, Messuaukio 1) on Day 0
  • The possibility to apply for a Startup Booth, to Startup Studio, and 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

What time do Day 0 events start?

Our founder-focused Day 0 (Nov 19) events take place during the day, afternoon and evening.

Founder Experience Events, which take place during the day, will all start at 11:30 am (EET) 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 before Founders Day, where doors will open in the evening. Program to be published later in 2024.

Can I apply to speak on stage at Slush 2024?

Feel free to leave your speaker suggestions in this form and stay tuned for more information on our stage opportunities for startups in 2024.

How do I apply for a Startup Booth at Slush 2024?

Startup Booth applications for next year’s edition will be opened later in 2024. Stay tuned to find out more.

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 Passes go to the right entities, the team will review each startup. Once we’ve reviewed and accepted your registration, you’ll receive an email and will be able to purchase Passes for your team. Due to the high volume of applications, the review process can take a few days.

Please note that ticket sales for Slush 2024 are not open yet. You can pre-register for the event here to get early access to next year’s tickets.

Are we eligible for Startup tickets if the company hasn't been incorporated yet?

Most investors coming to Slush want to be able to invest in the startups attending the event. For this reason, we require our Startup Pass-holders to have incorporated their companies before buying Slush Passes.

Are startup incubators eligible for the Startup 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 Passes.

Please purchase Attendee or Friday Passes in this case.
