Takeaways from Slush 2022

Our colleague Linn Sidahl shares insights from her visit to the world’s leading startup event in November.

Slush 2022 in Helsinki, Finland, brought together over 12,000 people from around the world to discuss the latest trends in the startup industry.

“You really feel the power of innovation at an event like this that brings together all the different actors within the innovation ecosystem. Not only does it provide energy, but it also fosters the emergence of new ideas for collaborations when so many startup enthusiasts are gathered under the same roof. It’s clear that innovation is key to making a difference, and the way to it spells collaboration,” says Ignite’s Project Manager Matchmaking, Linn Sidahl.

Among her highlights of the event, she mentions Ignite participating startup YOUR BEET pitching at Slush 100 competition.

“It was also cool to see Linnea Kronehed from the Swedish freight technology company Einride on the big stage,” says Linn.

Lastly, Linn believes it would have been beneficial to have a Swedish booth at the event gathering the entire startup community, similar to other countries.

“It would be amazing if we could collaborate and create a dedicated space to showcase Swedish startups at this huge event. This will give them even more exposure and recognition,” she concludes.
