IDEÁRIO brings together impact businesses to shine on Europe’s largest stage of startups, SLUSH!

SLUSH is the most ambitious European startup and technology event taking place in Finland, linking startups and talents to investors, executives and international media.
Slush went from an assembly of 300 people to a world-renowned event, now spreading globally. Following this growth, the philosophy behind Slush remained the same: to help the next generation of large innovative companies of the world to move forward.

The preparation of this event begins with Slush GIA, which involves the search, selection and mentoring of initiatives or business impact of the country, where 3 startups are selected for the finals in Finland, and all culminates with the mega event Slush that brings together entrepreneurs Of emerging markets, startups, investors, talents, and media from the four corners of the world in Helsinki from November 30 to December 1, 2017.

And the global acceleration program created in collaboration with Finland’s foreign ministry and multiple other global partners to accelerate impact initiatives and showcase extraordinary business opportunities in emerging markets.

IDEÁRIO hub will host the SLUSH GIA Local Pitching Competition on August 10th, 2017 and in this event the 9 initiatives will have a booth to expose their impact businesses, and in 3 minutes of the pitch, they will contest before the jury the opportunity to be on stage Of the SLUSH Global Event in Finland. As part of its incubation program, Standard Bank is the local partner of IDEÁRIO for this event.

In 2016, IzyShop and Mozambikes representing Mozambique – the only Lusophone African country – for the first time went through the same process, participated in the event and were winners in Helsinki.
