Health, Renewables, Corporate Innovation and Women & Tech – Vertical at Slush 2017

14 November 2017

Is dark, cold, humid and it will have 6 hours and a half of daylight by the end of the month. Welcome to November in South Finland. A month where most people would gladly take their suitcases and work from somewhere a bit sunnier and warmer.

However, on that very month every year, Helsinki sees a wave of more than 14.000 people arriving in the city. Explanation? Slush, one of Europe’s largest tech events is happening and with it bringing a bit of light and positive energy to an, otherwise, pretty sombre month.

We, at Vertical, will also contribute our grain of sand to the Slush activities and have prepared a very special program for this year with several events and hostings in addition to our Vertical booth in 6D.6 and representation in our main partner’s booth Samsung where we will showcase some of our alumni innovating with Samsung.
