Let’s face it, traditional microphones are plain boring. How about you join in on the Slush quirkiness and ‘play catch’ with our speakers, throwing around our soft, oversized mics for a change?
It’s not just the revolutionary tech that makes Slush Tokyo special. No, it’s not even the awesome concert-like atmosphere, it’s the people. Cheesy? Yes. An overstatement by any means? Absolutely not. Eventually, Slush is all about community & connection. It’s the brilliant minds and hustlers that are making this event what it is: An all-out celebration of entrepreneurship. So, if you’re looking to meet people and take part in interactive workshops highlighting new tech trends, the Crossing is the place to be.
Slush wouldn’t be the leading startup event in the world without giving startups the chance of a lifetime for growth. 80 distinguished startups will gather and try to pitch their way to success at our annual pitch contest! The challenge is arduous but the rewards are remarkable.
Spoiler… It is! So, join us at Slush Startup Station and experience the energy that disruption brings!
