Grown from a 300 person assembly to a world-renowned event – Bayer has been one of the partners at Europe's largest startup event Slush in 2016–2018 in Helsinki, Finland.
Slush is a technology conference for startups and tech talents to meet with top-tier international investors, executives and media organized annually in Helsinki. Whether one is looking for investors, mentoring or new co-operation partners and business ideas, Slush offers a unique opportunity to reach the right audience and engage with the tech community.
Our focus at Slush 2018 was in business matchmaking: screening for potential innovation partners to support the global success of Bayer and finding new interesting contacts.
To imagine the scale of the event: from a once 300-person assembly in just a few short years it has grown into one of the leading events of its kind. In 2018, 20,000 attendees, 3,100 startups, and 1,800 investors from 130 countries came to Slush to drive the world’s transition into the Digital Age.
At Bayer, we want to inspire people within the life science and startup communities to innovate together with us and help them to succeed in global breakthrough. We offer various Open Innovation programs and initiatives for startups, innovators and academia to increase the interest in advancing life.
