Enterprise Ireland showcased Irish innovation at SLUSH, a global-leading event for start-ups and the largest of its kind in the Nordics, which took place in December 2021 in Helsinki.
Due to the pandemic, Slush 2020 could not go ahead and a series of virtual events were instead put in place. Thus, in 2021 there was huge excitement to attend the event, which was held at a reduced capacity.
The Nordics team were lucky to be joined by 6 Irish companies as well as Minister Robert Troy. Minister Troy opened our attendance at the event with a reception at Ambassador Ruth Parkin’s residence in Helsinki. The reception brought together the Irish business community in Finland.
Minister Troy also visited Meneva, a Finnish taxi company, who deploy Enterprise Ireland client iCabbi’s taxi dispatch software.
Finally, before departing, the Minister accompanied us to Slush. He saw the IRELAND@SLUSH stand and was given a tour of the largest gathering of venture capital on the planet. Slush is renowned for it’s unique aesthetic and the pictures and videos below capture Minister Troy’s visit to Helsinki.
