Why 101, you might ask.
The number has been an important part of Slush Singapore’s journey from the very beginning. The decision to bring the very first Slush Singapore to life was born only 101 days before the event was held. Tight schedule, eh? That’s what we all thought – but with our lineup of driven, passionate people, it felt possible, and – against all odds – we made it happen.
A lot has changed since 2016.
Slush Singapore is still growing but has already become an important pillar of the the Southeast Asian ecosystem. This year will bring along even more changes and new ways to put the region on the map. Our roadshow will take us all over the biggest tech hubs of Southeast Asia, more tailored interaction opportunities will be available at the main event between founders and top mentors, and we will say goodbye to the pitch competition as you know it – only to introduce an even better one!
While a lot will change and improve, the core of Slush Singapore will always remain the same: to help the world-conquering entrepreneurs forward. Gearing up for 14th September, we are working hard with our team of volunteers and community partners to bring you the ultimate experience you will not forget.
