HIIT at Slush 2015

Wed, 18.11.2015

Researchers from the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT participated to Slush.

In 2015, Slush brought together 15.000 attendees, including 1.700 startups, 800 venture capital investors and 630 journalists from exactly 100 countries. People from more than half of the world’s countries traveled to the cold and dark Helsinki, with the ambition of taking their business to the next level.

Slush is a non-profit event organized by a community of entrepreneurs, investors, students and festival organizers. Although Slush has grown from a 300-person event to become one of the leading events of its kind in the world, the philosophy behind it has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies forward.
This year, Slush hosted also a science pitch competition. Antti Poikola participated and was one of the pitch finalists. See more about the project on #mydata A Nordic Model for human-centered personal data management and processing. 
The Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT)  is a collaborative doctoral education network hosted by HIIT. HICT granted five best doctoral students from the course Pitch training for ICT research, with a ticket to Slush.
