It’s been awhile since our latest post in our blog. Summer is now over and we can happily again inform you about our latest events and collaborations, as discussed below.
A few weeks ago we celebrated the opening of the academic year at Arcada. We want to wish all the new students a very warm welcome to Arcada and look forward meeting you around all the entrepreneurial questions, ideas and concerns you may have during your time in and outside the school.
Our free of charge livestream of the famous Nordic Business Forum is unique!

Slush and Slush Music are a definite must see and a experience one has to attend!
Slush brings together the leading actors of the global tech scene to Helsinki for something very special. Described by many as “Burning Man meets TED”, the event has grown in just a few short years to 17,500 attendees and 1 million live stream viewers. Slush (External link) is built for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. Whether you are looking for investors, customers, media exposure or mentoring, Slush offers a unique opportunity to reach the global audience and engage with the tech community.
After one truly amazing kick-off of Slush Music in 2016, we are again bringing music, technology, and entrepreneurship together in Helsinki in November. We truly believe that in Slush Music the world-conquering music entrepreneurs will find solutions to existing challenges and build the next generation music entities.
Slush is organized Thursday 30th of November and Friday 1st of December 2017 at Messukeskus (External link) (
Messuaukio 1, 00520 Helsinki). Slush Music is organized Tuesday 28th of November and Wednesday 29th of November 2017 at Kaapelitehdas (External link) (Tallberginkatu 1, 00180 Helsinki).
Slush is still looking for and accepting volunteers!
Slush would not exist without the volunteers. By volunteering you will see how the World’s leading startup and tech event is built – from the inside. You will meet interesting people, learn a lot of new things and get a chance to be part of the unique volunteer community with people from over 50 countries. You can apply to become a volunteer here (External link) and applications end 1st of October.
Please note that the low-priced student and academic passes opens up in October.
Stay tuned for more posts!
