WELCOME is a project under the Startup Europe initiative that aims to build a pan-European tech startup ecosystem. To that end, Welcome links startups from five vibrant EU ecosystems — Berlin, Dublin, Madrid, Milan and Salamanca, to customers, VCs, business angels, corporates, mentors and other startups. The project targets aspiring entrepreneurs as well as early and late stage startups with activities enabling them to grow across borders and access the right combination of finance while helping corporates identify the best talents.

This competition is part of Welcome’s Europass Programme


Slush is all about startups – we help the next generation of world conquering founders forward. Europe’s leading startup and technology event, and expanding in Asia, brings together founders and tech talent to meet with top-tier international investors, executives, and media.

Held during the darkest time of the year in Helsinki, Finland, Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. At the very core of Slush is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a world-wide startup community.

Slush is a student-driven non-profit movement originally founded to change attitudes towards entrepreneurship. In 2015, Slush was organized in Tokyo and Beijing for the first time. In 2016, Slush is spreading to Tokyo, Shanghai and Singapore.
