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.
In 2015, Business France was given the responsibility to promote the French Tech brand and initiative internationally. This means showing the world that not only is France an innovation hotspot, but that it is also going through a deep cultural and mentality change, making it more startup friendly than ever.
On top of featuring several examples of some of France’s most promising startups (which you can meet at SLUSH), this catalogue is meant to break the myth of a closed-to-foreign investment country of bureaucrats where innovation is stifled.
